A rare video of the Old City of Jerusalem: העיר העתיקה البلدة القديمة, is a 0.9 square kilometre walled area within the modern city of Jerusalem; it lies within East Jerusalem. Until the 1860s this area constituted the entire city of Jerusalem. The Old City is home to several sites of key religious importance: the Temple Mount and its Western Wall for Jews, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, and the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque for Muslims.
The Old City of Jerusalem comprises four quarters: Muslim, Christian, Armenian, and Jewish. The following video shows both the modern and the ancient.
Since the 19th century, the Old City has traditionally been divided into four quarters (Jewish, Christian, Moslem and Armenian). The only structure that survived the destruction of the Temple by the Romans in 70 CE is the Western Wall. In the 7th century CE, the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa mosque were built on the site following the occupation of the city by the Muslim army. Another site of great importance is the Christian Church of the Holy Sepulcher. During the 1948 Independence War, the Old City was occupied by Jordan. The Jordanians expelled the Jewish residents and destroyed the Jewish Quarter. In the Six-Day War in 1967, Israel liberated the Old City and reunited the whole city.
