Muslim Quarter, Jerusalem
(2.3/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Roam the maze of ancient streets and alleys in Muslim Quarter, merging thousands of years of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim history. With a population of 22,000 residents and stretching over 31 hectares (76 acres), it is the largest quarter in the city. The temple mound--housing the city's most prominent landmark, the Dome of the Rock--rises above the neighborhood. Its other historic attractions include Roman ruins and Crusader remains, Christian churches, and the Via Dolorosa--the path that Jesus walked on his way to Golgotha. Visit the quarter's bustling market packed with stalls selling spices, textiles, and handicrafts, such as leather goods and embroideries. Put Muslim Quarter into our Jerusalem vacation route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Jerusalem.
