A night in Jerusalem, from the Cenacle to the Western Wall Tunnel

Every year around 100 visitors in Jerusalem get trapped by the so-called syndrome of Jerusalem, “a psychosis characterised by an intense religious theme that typically resolves to full recovery after a few weeks or after being removed from the area” …

Beside the Hagia Maria Sion Abbey, where the Holy Mary died.


The road to the Greek Orthodox cemetery, close to the location of the Last Supper of Jesus Christ.


Olive trees in King David’s garden beside the Walls of Jerusalem.


The tower of King David and Jewish graves on the outer side of Jerusalem Walls


In the narrow streets of Jerusalem …


… on the roofs above the Arab Souk towards the Western Wall.


At the Western Wall, remnant of the ancient wall that surrounded the Jewish Temple




Into the Western Wall Tunnel, the closest point to the Holy of Holies



With such historical places and prominent names, it is easy to understand where the Jerusalem syndrome comes from. I personally got a déjà vu after crossing the Jaffa gate, closeby David’s tower. Next stop: a day in Jerusalem!
