Pinsteps. Crossroads of Agay and Ala Ad Din, Old City of Jerusalem

aGai is gorge in Hebrew. This street does indeed pass through the gorge dividing between Mount Zion and the Temple Mount. In the time of the Romans, this gorge was called Theropion. Streets rise from aGai to the temple mountain. One of them is called Alla ad Din, which sounds like Aladin. But this is not the street of the hero Aladdin of fairy tales of a thousand and one nights. This street is named after Khorezm rulers. Since the Muslim world is large and magnificent, the Islam of Central Asia is also represented in Jerusalem. By the way, at the crossroads of the streets, there is another sibil - the fountain of Sultan Suleiman.

Old City of Jerusalem from Jaffa Gate to Ethiopian Village

The trip combines the famous and hidden places of Old Jerusalem. Traditionally, we start at the Jaffa Gate, but soon we will enter a quiet street of the Maronite Church. Further, we will visit the little-known Syrian church of St. Mark, built on Mark's house where the Last Supper of Jesus and his disciples took place. Next, we will pass through the Jewish quarter with its famous Cardo Street, Madaba Map and two synagogues - Hurva and Tipheret. We will also visit the Institute of the Temple, which tells in great detail about objects in the Jerusalem Temple. Next, the synagogue at the Western Wall will show us the rare pillars of the ancient bridge that were the entrance portal to the Temple Mount. Further, we will walk through the Muslim quarter and talk about the city's water supply system and its open street fountains - sibyls. Finally, after visiting the fifth, sixth and seventh stops of the Via Dolorosa, we will complete our trip in the Ethiopian village on the roof of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
