Overview of Jerusalem from the Haas Promenade

The Haas Promenade is fairly easy to reach from the Hebron Road (Derech Hevron) on the south side of Jerusalem. From there one has a beautiful view of the Old City of Jerusalem and the surrounding area. Those who know the city will enjoy this photo more than those who do not.

In this photo you can see the entirety of the southern wall of the Old City. From left to right notice the Church of the Dormition, the Dome of the Rock, the depression of the Kidron Valey, Mount Scopus, and the Mount of Olives. You can see the three towers of Olivet.

Because I have not been posting very much lately, and to show my appreciation for those of you who subscribe and continue to visit the blog, I have linked the image above to one large enough to use in PowerPoint presentations. I hope you and your viewers will enjoy.

As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore. (Psalm 125:2 ESV)

  2. Actually it is better known as the Sherover Promenade.

  3. Thanks. I was following the Jerusalem Street Atlas by Carta. It shows the Haas Promenade to the east of Sherover. Perhaps the names are used interchangeably, but I was at Haas. A tourist looking for the area might also ask for the Peace Forest.

  4. Old City of Jerusalem is very beautiful. I saw that location still in my mind and who will see this location. Then they will enjoy the moment.
