Photographer's Note

three thousands years of history are seen in this single photo. This is a view of the southern wall of the Temple Mountain. You can see the dome of the Al Aksa mosque, which was built in the 8th century, above the ruins of the second Jewish temple. The wall was built by king Herod in the 1st century BC to form a huge square around the temple. The upper parts of the wall were built later, layer after layer. We still don’t know all the secrets hidden under all those layers.
I could not upload the note I prepared, because it's too long, but please read more about the history of Jerusalem .
