These slopes near the Mount of Temple are the preferred place for burial of religious Jews. It is told when the Messiah arrive the people buried in this zone will be the first to be resurrected.

Estas encostas próximas do Monte do Templo são o local preferido para sepultamentos de judeus religiosos, pois, segundo a tradição, quando o Messias chegar ele ressuscitará primeiramente os mortos desta área.

Hi Jorge,
Taken from a good POV, a composition well balanced with the view of this historic slope and the tower, tfs.

Bonjour, cher Jorge,
Je suis toujours vos pérégrinations avec beaucoup d'intérêt. Je voyage, je découvre, j'apprends et cela me passionne.
Merci de nous faire découvrir des lieux chargés d'Histoire.

Hello Jorge,

This is quite an amazing sight.
I needed your notes to explain to me the significance of the site!
Now that I understand the message, I can comment upon your very fine, well-balanced photograph which is both informative and artistic.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Ciao Jorge, great view of cemetery, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Jorge,
This makes me think of a package tour to Paradise, like an all inclusive chartered flight.
Apart from that it's a nice but slightly odd postcard type of photo. And I guess it teaches a lot of people something about the world.
Best wishes,

Hola Jorge,

debe ser un lugar interesante para visitar, me llama la atención la torre del fondo que destaca sobre el paisaje, bien visto,

Un saludo,


Hello Jorge
Interesting and fascinating picture of this remarkable place.
I’m always astonished by the idea of some religions that they have a step ahead when they will arrive at the gate of heaven.
Excellent presentation

Hello Jorge,
A good view over the tree line.
I'm afraid that one day this slope will become full with tombs ...
Good to have included the church tower.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Jorge,

A good overview of this historic section of the old city. Wonderful sharpness and superb lighting and saturation with an interesting note. Tfs!

Hello Jorge,
This is a nice view of the Mount of Olives now "uglified" (just made the word up) by these graves. I understand it costs a pretty penny to be buried there and Menachem Begin is buried there, too.
