A vacation serves people a lot of purposes and a wide array of choices perplexes or complicates the idea of it. If one looks for an ideal place where a melting pot of religion and culture emerges very interestingly and fascinatingly then Jerusalem is one destination to visit. Every corner is a strip of scripture which leads one to discover more of its lavish self. If one is history savvy and is looking for an enriching vacation Jerusalem is a must-see. Jerusalem never fails to satiate a taste of history everywhere.
It is such a wonderful experience to pay a visit to one of the oldest cities in the world. Nothing gets closer to the feeling of classical antiquity than being in this country wherein a lot of religious diversity and archaic remains were preserved. It is like flipping on archives and a wide medley of scrolls in a live and animated perspective. Visiting their more than a thousand synagogues, almost 200 churches and more or less a hundred of mosques makes it easier for a person to appreciate the sacredness that makes up Jerusalem. It is a trip to discover oneself and perhaps rejuvenate the religion framework one has. In that case, pilgrimage is also one purpose of vacation Jerusalem offers.
And even if history is one impeccable art as it is, the city also offers a lot of artistic venues which serves as a sanctuary of remarkable chronicles. Checking out places such as the Israel Museum’s Shrine of the Book which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls, and as well as The Dome of the Rock which is renowned as one of the world’s most beautiful architectural treasures is such a note-worthy experience.
Another fascinating archaeological site one would not want to miss to witness is the Tower of David which can be found close to the Jaffa Gate. This citadel is generous enough to provide anyone a 360-degree view of Jerusalem’s Old City together with its other modern areas. If this seems overwhelming, there is also one place that is unforgettable in Jerusalem – The Western Wall also known as The Wailing Wall. There is so much history attached to this wall which was established by Herod during the 20th B.C and figuring out why it was also called as the Wailing Wall will prove that. At one point in history, Jews were prohibited to set foot to Jerusalem and whenever they could annually they would cry over what was left of the temple.
Just being in those places mentioned above is like shrinking oneself to the vast contents of a lifetime in the past. Despite the great places Jerusalem has in store for everyone, travelers might wander where it is convenient and accessible to stay. A place like that of The Colony Suites would be a great deal. Any trip to Jerusalem will be worthwhile with The Colony Suites located in the Germany Colony in Jerusalem. Getting to wander around Jerusalem is rewarding enough and surreal. If one wishes to travel and is running out of plans for a vacation Jerusalem may just be the right one. Learning a lot and gratifying the eye at the same time will be an ultimate pair of achievement on a city that relives everyone’s Bible experience.
