5 Most Instagrammable Places in Jerusalem

So what are the 5 most instagrammable places in Jerusalem? Well, before that I would like to say that Israel is one the most interesting on the face of the planet. I mean it is so diverse by its changing landscapes and the people that live here. This is especially true about the city of Jerusalem. The Holy City is a microcosmos of Israel. So complex by its history and so diverse by its population you have to try to capture it with your phone lens. Also, the city is filled with holy sites, colorful markets, and different people from many religouns that which turns Jerusalem into an ideal spot for amazing photos! So here we go this is my top five picks! On my Jerusalem Tour, you’ll be able to see all these amazing spots!



The Western Wall

Most Instagrammable Places in Jerusalem is the Western Wall located in the Jewish Quarter. What’s ironic to me is that the Wailing Wall is just a wall but for Jews, it marks the closest spot to the Holy of Holies in the destroyed Jewish Temple 2,000 years ago. It’s a symbol of a glorious past and where God still dwells, In other words, the area of Temple Mt. If you’re are already in the area you should visit the Western Wall Tunnels. The tour is just an hour-long and you go underground and get to visit the very foundations of the Wailing Wall!



Most Instagrammable Places in Jerusalem: Church of the Holy Sepulcher

The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is a church in the Christian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. According to traditions dating back to the fourth century, it contains the two holiest sites in Christianity: the site where Jesus was crucified; at a place known as Calvary or Golgotha, and Jesus’s empty tomb; where he is believed by Christians to have been buried and resurrected.



Dome of the Rock

The Dome of the Rock is an Islamic shrine located on the Temple Mount in the Muslim Quarter. Furthermore, it was initially completed in 691–92 CE at the order of Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik on the site of the Second Jewish Temple; destroyed during the Roman Siege of Jerusalem in 70 CE. With its golden dome seen from afar, it’s for sure one of the most beautiful spots in Jerusalem.



Ein Kerem

Ein Kerem is a charming hillside village famed for its centuries-old holy sites. These include the Church of St. John the Baptist, containing a cave said to be the saint’s birthplace, and Mary’s Spring, where the Virgin Mary is believed to have drunk. Dotting the village’s narrow streets are galleries and shops selling hand-painted tiles and jewelry, plus quaint cafes and stylish Mediterranean restaurants! Another church worth checking out is the Church of Visitation.



Machane Yehuda Market

Mahane Yehuda Market often referred to as “The Shuk”, is a marketplace in Modern Jerusalem. Popular with locals and tourists alike, the market’s more than 250 vendors sell fresh fruits and vegetables; baked goods, and much more! The color and bustle of the marketplace are accentuated by vendors who call out their prices to passersby. On Thursdays and Fridays, the marketplace is filled with shoppers stocking up for Shabbat (Saturday).
