Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Israel: Photo Gallery

We went on an urban hike through Jerusalem during one of the four days that we were in Israel in December 2015. The final stop on our urban hike was the Mount of Olives. We arrived at the cemetery by accident after visiting some of the other major sites in Jerusalem’s old city.

Tourist attractions like the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Israel, are somewhat incomprehensible because they’re a part of a mythology that we grew up with. Having severe jet lag makes things even more incomprehensible. It was hard to believe we were really there and yet, the things that stood out to us weren’t related to Christian mythology, but rather current political issues like the rift between Muslims, Christians, and Jews.
