Pinsteps. Jaffa Gate Panorama, Old City of Jerusalem

Usually, the pedestrian trips in the Old City of Jerusalem start from the Jaffa Gate. On the right of the gate, you can see the citadel with the pointed spire of the minaret - this is the Tower of David but has no connection to King David. Yes, many things are named after this prominent biblical king with no reference to him. The quarter with tiled roofs and the mill in the opposite hill is the Mishkenot Shaananim quarter - the first quarter of Jerusalem, built in the second half of the 19th century out of the city walls. Moses Montefiore - Lord of His Majesty Queen Victoria, donated its development and construction. On the top of the hill, you can see the massive building standing alone. The Hotel David is a masterpiece of English colonial architecture, the city's decoration since the English government. The border between western and eastern Jerusalem passed along the Hebron Road beneath us until 1967.
