Zion Gate: To the South represents the dream of the Jews, the glory of Israel, and Zion Gate itself is a miracle of the Jews. When Jerusalem was founded in 1948, although Jews still lived in the city, it did not belong to the State of Israel (crying) (crying) The Six-Day War of 1967 (the Third Middle East War). Israel captured the city incredibly from Zion Gate. From then on, Jews could continue to stay in front of the crying wall at the door of God's Dialogue (Beer) (Beer) during the Six-Day War. It is said that this is the resting place of the Virgin Mary. The church is full of mosaic paintings, the Virgin Mary and the young Jesus. Below the paintings are the eight saints of the prophets in Isaiah's prophecy and Latin verses. The mosaic pattern in the chapel of 6 small arches is one of the essence of this monastery. The beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary Maria, made by ivory and walnut, is the tomb of Israeli Wang Dawei. The statue of King David is described as the most righteous king in all the kings of Israel, and a great soldier, musician and Poet. He unified Israel and became the first Jewish King of Israel. He was also loved by Jews and Christians. It is said that Michelangelo's representative David is his statue.
Located in the south of the old city of Jerusalem, it has religious and historical value for Jews and Christians. There are w famous scenic spots - "Crown of King David's Cemetery; "Notre Dame's Sleeping Church" where the Virgin Mary died; a statue of Mary lying in the basement of the church into permanent sleep; the Marco Tower, also known as the "Dinner House", is the place where many events occurred in the "New Testament-Bible".
Today, the first stop is Mount Zion outside the gate of Zion, the old city of Jerusalem. The importance of Mount Zion to Judaism lies in the tomb of David. Although the Tomb of David was not the place where David was buried, Jews still regarded it as a sacred place. Another landmark on Mount Zion is the Notre Dame's Sleeping Hall, also known as Dominion Church. When we entered the church, we were told that Mass would be held soon, so we had to speed up our visit. The tour guide led us into the basement of the church, where the statue of the Virgin Mary, who was lying down, fell asleep forever. Whether she was religious or not, in such an environment and atmosphere, she could not help lowering the decibel of her speech, as if she would disturb anyone. The murals and sculptures around them are exquisite. Another place of special significance to Christianity is the Chicken Ming Hall of St. Peter. But because there is a mass here today, we can't visit it.
Mount Zion, south of Jerusalem, is one of the symbols of Israel and a holy place for Christians. Zion Gate is another Jewish miracle. In the Six-Day War of 1967 (the Third Middle East War), Israel captured the city incredibly, which was invaded from Zion Gate. The door walls were pitted with bullet holes left by the Six-Day War. This afternoon, we also visited the Mark Tower where Jesus and his disciples celebrated the Last Supper, the Church of the Virgin Mary and the Tomb of King David. Oscar Schindler's remains are buried here, a saint worthy of Jewish remembrance for thousands of years.
Mount Zion, a small side of the land, can not be separated from the heavy religion, disputes and tangles. Catholicism takes it as the place where the last supper takes place, and Judaism takes it as King David's tomb for their own reasons, and there is endless debate about the place where it belongs. Islam, on the other hand, simply opens up a space in the corner of the hall where it says "the Koran". Mount Zion became a holy mountain for Christianity, Judaism and Muslims.
Looking at the old city from a distance in Mount Zion, I suddenly felt awed at the birthplace of the three religions. For Jews and Christians, each has its own religious and historical value. Christianity believes that Jerusalem will eventually become a paradise. For Muslims, believers are looking forward to Mohammed's arrival in the Temple Square. So Jerusalem is the third holy place of Islam after Mecca and Medina.
Several major attractions in Mount Zion are very close, including the place where Jesus and 12 disciples eat their last supper (the Holy Land of Christianity), the tomb of King David (the Holy Land of Judaism), and the Notre Dame's Sleeping Hall (also known as Dominion Church, the Holy Land of Catholicism). And from here north to the old city of Jerusalem, there will be the famous Zion Gate, which is also the gate that must pass from the Jewish District of the old city to the Holy place. At sunset, there is not much noise here, and walking beside the ancient city wall is absolutely very quiet.
