Jerusalem

(4.7/5 based on 15+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: historic sites
Jerusalem, known to Māori as Hiruhārama, is a settlement up the Whanganui River from Whanganui, New Zealand. Originally called Patiarero, it was one of the largest settlements on the Whanganui River in the 1840s, with several hundred Ngāti Hau inhabitants of the iwi Te Āti Haunui-a-Pāpārangi. Unlike other Whanganui River settlements given transliterated place names by Reverend Richard Taylor in the 1850s, Jerusalem is usually referred to using the English version of its name. It grew into several small settlements, including Roma and Peterehama, founded by the remain of Taylor's congregation after the majority converted to Catholicism when a Roman Catholic mission was built in 1854.Jerusalem was the isolated site where, in 1892, Suzanne Aubert established the congregation of the Sisters of Compassion. They became a highly respected charitable nursing/religious order. Aubert also established the Jerusalem Foundling Home in 1886 which housed and cared for abandoned children from around New Zealand. A convent remains on the mission property, as well as the church which replaced the original building destroyed by fire in 1888, and Sisters of Compassion still care for them.
