Old City of Jerusalem
A mix of old and new architecture, the big standout of the Jerusalem skyline is the golden roof of the Dome of the Rock. Over the millennia the city has fallen under various hands (Jewish, Babylonian, Roman, Christian, Muslim); its current walls were built in the 1500s by Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Naturally, with so many competing histories, fueled by impassioned belief, the question of who owns what is never far behind.
