Old City of Jerusalem
Thought to have been founded by King David in 1004 B.C.E., Jerusalem’s Old City continues to be a vibrant and diverse city. A crossroads of major religions and cultures, the Old City comprises four quarters—Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim. Compelling archaeological sites and significant structures are found in all four quarters, but the Jewish Quarter contains the famous Western Wall, the only remains of the ancient Temple of Jerusalem, and the Cardo, an arcaded avenue typical of Roman urban planning.
