Of all the photos I took while in Jerusalem, this has to be one of my favorite views of the city.
Taken from the grounds of St. Peter in Gallicantu, it shows the Temple Mount and the Al Aqsa Mosque, a portion of the Old City walls, and the Mount of Olives, including the gold-domed Russian Church of St. Mary Magdalene. Holy city, indeed!
At the upper left, the tower at Mount Scopus (close to where we were staying during our visit) stands.
With a wider panorama from nearby, one also can take in the Dome of the Rock and the Russian Church of the Ascension (which is at the very top of the Mount of Olives).
