Religion in Jerusalem
Discover the Beauty of Religion
With so many opportunities to discover the deeper meaning and spirituality in your life, your trip to Jerusalem could be life-changing. Meet and explore some of the holiest sites in the world, uncover sacred texts, and dive deep into a world of greater meaning.
Visit the Dome of Rock, an Islamic shrine that commemorates the spot on which the Islamic prophet Muhammad is believed to have ascended to Heaven, accompanied by the angel Gabriel.
Welcome the Western Wall into your life. As an ancient part of the wall and one of the most significant holy places in the world, it’s a place to put your notes, hopes, and dreams on a piece of paper and embed them in the heavy rocks of the wall. Discover a holy site where Israelis come to find help, ask questions, seek health, find answers, and reap the benefits of success, marriage, and happiness.
Explore the sacred Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where according to traditions is located on the two holiest sites in Christendom: the site where Jesus was crucified, known as “Calvary” in Latin and “Golgotha” in Greek, and Jesus’ empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected. From synagogues to mosques to churches, discovering religion through the holy sites is a way to experience a deeper meaning in life.
