    We tried this activity on a whim because we wanted to get a better feel for the layout of the city of Jerusalem. The tickets allow access to both the southern and northern ramparts (entrances are near the Jaffa gate). Ticket prices were reasonable and the entrance window allowed for flexibility in visit times.

    I preferred the southern ramparts because they were cleaner and better maintained and the views were nicer overall.

    I would not recommend this experience to anyone with mobility or balance issues as there are uneven surfaces/steps and slippery stones. Be sure to wear sturdy footwear and hold onto handrails.

    The Christian Quarter has many religious institutions, the most important being the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where Jesus was crucified, died, buried and rose again. Most of the residents of the Christian Quarter are Palestinians. The Christian Quarter is in the heart of Jerusalem, surrounded by the Old Walled City.

    The Haas promenade offers a sweeping view of Jerusalem. If you’re after a daylight view, try to go on a clear, sunny day. We visited around noon, and with the sun to our back, the contrast of blue sky against the white buildings was spectacular! A plaque points out the major landmarks. The old and the new, with several thousand years of history in between – stretched out in front of you!

    "I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
    .... with four boys ages 5 to 14. It was hot and sunny- we started on the surround and circle Mount Strong hike, which is on a wide jeep road but it has total sun exposure. We didn't have the time nor supplies (and the boys didn't have the interest nor resilience) to complete the loop of more than two hours, so we did enjoy our adventure, but we turned back.... full disclosure- the same thing happened two other times in the past year- failed attempts with young charges.

    ADVICES
    This is certainly a well-organized and well equipped and famous nature reserve. As such, it is a good holiday spot and a good place for hiking in nature, but not far from the city of Jerusalem. I certainly endorse and recommend a visit to here.

    Cotton merchants gate leads to row of souvenior shops . along with shops that sell Quran kareem.Shop keepers are freindly. Along with this entrance to temple mount there are security check points at all the gates.They expect you to know a few verses from Quran.before entering the holy place.

    A simple entrance to the old city with no information. Stallholder selling their ware fresh produce right at the entrance and a variety as you walk further in. The engineering adn architecture of the old city walls is amazing

    Depending on what path you follow, you may wind up underneath the church to view one of the stations and then come up the stairs inside it. The church interior is fairly plain and no picture taking is permitted.
