Pinsteps. Temple mount and Mount of Olives observing point, Old City of Jerusalem

Let’s learn what to see from this exciting observing point. On the left side of the high wall, a retaining wall of the Temple Mount, a mountain with thousands of tombstones protrudes. This mount is the Mount of Olives with the ancient and great cemetery of Jerusalem. This mountain separates the city from the Judean Desert. From there, according to tradition, the Messiah will come to the town. And when the Messiah comes, everyone will be resurrected and will stand before Him to be judged. It follows, therefore, that the first will be those buried on the Mount of Olives. We are joking. The truth is a practice in the perspective of times. The Mount of Olives has always been essential. Evidence of a tradition of burying the dead on the mountain is almost 3000 years old, and this custom is still in force.
