Roam the maze of ancient streets and alleys in Muslim Quarter, merging thousands of years of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim history.

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.
