Olive Hill is not only the place where Jesus preached, the holy place of Jerusalem's religion, but also the place recorded in the Bible, surrounded by olive trees of the same age as Jesus. The main attractions are the Universal Cathedral, where Jesus prayed the night before his arrest, built between 1919.1924. Under the olive hills, the garden of Gethsemane is shaded with the sturdy, solid olive trees of Jesus'time. Hebrew for Gethsemane means "squeezing olives".
The Olive Hill in Jerusalem is the best place to enjoy the Holy city. The golden Jerusalem is sacred and beautiful in the sunshine. Olive Hill is also where Jesus preached, surrounded by olive trees. Although Liulan Mountain is full of Christian monuments, the ancient cemetery where Jews have been buried for more than 900 years is also on the mountain. Therefore, it is also a sacred place to commemorate for the Jewish people.
The Olive Hill echoes the old city of Jerusalem. On the Olive Hill, you can see the Golden Peak Mosque clearly. There is a famous Olive Garden at the foot of the mountain. According to the Bible, Jesus was captured here. The next day he was crucified. Olive trees that have grown for more than 2000 years can be seen here.
Olive Hill overlooks the Golden Roof and the Golden Gate Wind blowing up the sand and the Golden Roof is still so dominant. All the buildings and landscapes in our sight are arranged in order. The Golden Gate is blocked and the cemetery is built around it. Can't God see their intentions? Maybe the world is so turbulent and drifting away. Maybe God deliberately created so many conflicts for me. We learn to tolerate and cherish
Olive Hill is located in the east of the Old City of Jerusalem. It was named after the olive trees planted all over the hills. It is a holy place for Jews and Christians. It is opposite the Temple Mount where the old city of Jerusalem is located. Standing at the top of Mount Olives (in front of the Seven Arches Hotel), you can see the old city of Jerusalem. But there are tens of thousands of Jewish cemeteries at their feet. Jews always want to be buried in Mount Olive. It is said that the cemetery on the hillside is the oldest cemetery in the world. From Biblical times to today, 4,000-year-old cemeteries coexist with today's cemeteries. There are an estimated 150,000 cemeteries on the hill, including Zacharias (the prophet who prophesied here) and many rabbis of Judaism from the 15th to the 20th centuries. For the Jewish people, this place is also a sacred place to commemorate. The Jewish cemetery was simple, with no flowers or sacrifices, but only stones picked up on the grave as a memorial. In A.D. 70, the Roman army encamped in Mount Olive, besieged Jerusalem, and then destroyed the city. During the First Middle East War in 1948 and the Six-Day War in 1967, the Mount of Olives was occupied by Jordanians and seriously damaged. Jordanians built roads and military toilets with tombstones from cemeteries, many of which have a history of thousands of years. After the Six-Day War, the Israelis did their best to transport the surviving tombstones back to the mountains. Olive Hill was also where Jesus preached. Under the hills, Rosemary is planted in the Gethsemane Garden called Memory, beside the Gethsemane Universal Church, also known as the Cathedral of Depression. The rock legend in front of the altar is where Jesus spent the last night after he was betrayed. The nearby Orthodox churches are St. · Mary's Cathedral; Dominis · Fleet Chapel beside it; a ascending cathedral is said to have the footprints of Jesus when he ascended to heaven; not far from Peter · Nestor's Cathedral, which contains the main prayer written in 44 languages. In addition, the tomb of the Virgin Mary, Siloa Pool, became a holy place for Christians. Standing at the tower of the Old City of Jerusalem, looking at the Olive Mountains, olive trees are sparse and graves are scattered. Looking further ahead, you can see the separation wall along the Israeli-Palestinian border.
I've been to many countries and cities, and Jerusalem is the best place I've ever been. I'm afraid there's no place beyond her, the Holy Land of the Three Religions. Religious culture is particularly strong. Plus the different architectural styles of the three religions, the beauty can hardly be described in words. When I went there, it had just snowed, and the holiness of Jerusalem was enhanced by the White Mountains in the past.
The Mount of Olives is the highest point in Jerusalem. Standing on it, you can see the whole picture of Jerusalem. There is a saying - "God gave the world a very beautiful nine points in Jerusalem. It can be seen that the holy mountain and the holy city are in the hearts of people.
