Among all the quarters, this is the clean and neat quarter. The houses are made of white stone - beautiful. We could see most of the houses as we entered via the dung gate. One knows that this house is jewish as it has a mezusa near the door.

So interesting watching people going about their business, all the hustle and bustle gave a feeling of excitement to visitors, would loved to have spent longer visiting, but weather was not in our favour unfortunately

Take a good camera and a good lens along and just walk around the neighborhood. If you are into people photography, this is the place to be. However, please be advised that many Orthodox Jewish women do not like to be photographed and get upset if you photograph them. So respect their wishes and photograph only those who have no... More

Old city of Jerusalem is incredible labyrint and always you can find new streets which you missed previous day. Jewish part is nice but somehow very new and it lacks the old city character.

While visiting the old city of Jerusalem make sure to take your lunch or dinner break in the Jewish Quarter where they have a variety of delicious options. This quarter also has some of the most modern amenities and buildings of all the quarters because much was rebuilt. It is interesting to see the old mixed with the slightly newer.
