Jerusalem's name is a combination of "Yireh" ("The abiding place", the name given by Abraham to the place where he began to sacrifice his son) and "Shalem" ("Place of Peace", given by high priest Shem). It is one of the oldest cities in the world (the City of David was settled in the 4th millennium BCE) and is considered holy to the three major religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  Jerusalem has been destroyed at least twice, besieged 23 times, attacked 52 times, and captured and recaptured 44 times.
Tomb of the Virgin Mary is a tomb in Kidron Valley at the foot of Mount of Olives. It is believed to be the burial place of Virgin Mary. Christians are commemorating the Ascension of Virgin Mary each year in August 15.
Kidron Valley is separating the Temple Mount from the Mount of Olives. The three monumental tombs on the eastern side of the Kidron Valley are among the most well-known landmarks of ancient Jerusalem. These are the Tomb of Absalom, the Tomb of James the Minor and the so-called "Tomb of Zechariah". Christians believe that the Last Judgment will be held here.
The Temple Mount or "Mount of the House of God for Jews (being also the holiest site in Judaism), known to Muslims as the Haram esh-Sharif - "the Noble Sanctuary" is a hill located in the Old City of Jerusalem that for thousands of years has been venerated as a holy site, in Judaism, Christianity and Islam alike. The Western Wall, Wailing Wall, or Kotel, known to Muslims as Al-Buraq Wall, is an ancient limestone wall in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is a relatively small segment of a far longer ancient retaining wall, known also in its entirety as the "Western Wall". The wall was originally erected as part of the expansion of the Second Jewish Temple begun by Herod the Great.
Via Dolorosa or "Way of Grief," "Way of Sorrow," "Way of Suffering" or simply "Painful Way" is a street within the Old City of Jerusalem, believed to be the path that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion. The winding route to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre—a distance of about 600 metres is a celebrated place of Christian pilgrimage.
Church of the Holy Sepulchre, also called the Church of the Resurrection or Church of the Anastasis, is the holiest place in Christian beliefs. The church contains the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus of Nazareth was crucified at a place known as "Calvary" or "Golgotha" and Jesus's empty tomb, where he is said to have been buried and resurrected.
