To most Christians, visiting the Holy Land is a dream come true. After all, this is the birthplace of their faith, a holy country and center of their religious pilgrimage. The culture, history, and beauty of this land make it a vacation spot where Christians can go to renew their faith, learn more about biblical history and enjoy a journey into the land of milk and honey.
One of the first places that Christians enjoy visiting is the Old City of Jerusalem and the four quarters, surrounded by eight gates. Four quarters consist of the Christian Quarter, the Arab Quarter, the Jewish Quarter and the Armenian Quarter. If you are looking for Jerusalem day trip, then you can opt for the web.
Each quarter has different attractions and site visits that will prove interesting. Remember that every quarter the environment is different and it is best to obtain information about each before visiting so that you will know what to expect and where to go.
Western or Wailing Wall is the last remnant of the Jewish temples and built more than 2,000 years ago. This wall provides the boundary between the Temple Mount from the Muslim Quarter and the Jewish Quarter.
Due to historical and emotional significance of the Wailing Wall, many Christians visit here. This is a place where many people would stop to meditate, reflect and pray to God, with some leaving their own prayer requests in the wall.
If you are interested in history and archeology, you will want to be part of the Western Wall Tunnel Tour, which runs through an underground section of the Western Wall. This tour shows the development of Temple Mount from the first temple period today.
