  • As a neighborhood itself, it is the most bland of the 4, often changing with the cheerful and colorful Muslim quarter. And then incredible jams are created in the holy tomb and surroundings to see/touch/kiss a stone that is supposedly the tomb of Jesus. Seeing the very first or last hour of the day
