Some people travel to Jerusalem and some make a religious pilgramidge to Jerusalem. Whatever your reason, Jerusalem has more holy and secular sites than most cities especially in the middle east. In fact, Jerusalem was named one of the world’s top 10 travel destinations for culture and sightseeing. Must see sights for travelers include the Western Wall, Temple Mount, Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial and the City of David.
At STREETWISE® we love to travel. We've mapped over 100 destinations around the world. Our company is staffed by people who are serious globe trotters. We don't simply visit cities and take pictures at the monuments; we're the type of travelers who like to get hands-on. We take the back streets and check out the parks; we review every little detail - like the direction of each roadway. If you're our kind of traveler then STREETWISE® makes your kind of Jerusalem street map.
The STREETWISE® Jerusalem street map contains a detailed overview of Jerusalem from the Jerusalem Forest on the west side to the Peace Forest on the east side of town. From Mount Scopus and Ramot Forest north to the Malkha Technology Park to the south, the STREETWISE® Jerusalem street map covers everything in between in detail you cannot find on other maps.
Our Jerusalem street map includes an enlarged inset map of the Old City at a scale of 1:7000. This scale allows for great detail and clear reading of places within the walled city. All the atmospheric streets and alleyways are drawn and many of the important sites found in the Muslim, Christian, Armenian and Jewish quarters are rendered in architectural detail for easy identification. We reccognize the interests of all faiths, so we feature the 15 Sations of the Cross which are pin pointed along the holy way. Many synagogues are featured including the most recently opened Hurva Synagogue and the Western Wall is drawn in three dimensional detail. Mount Moriah or Temple Mount, the Dome of the Rock, El Kas and El Aqsa Mosque are specially featured as detailed drawings on the map. Just outside the old city wall near the Dung Gate the city of David Archaeology site can be visited as well as Sidron Spring, Hezekiah’s Tunnel and Siloam pool.
Further north of the Old City is the Jerusalem Peace Forest which descends along the slope of the Haas and Scherover Promenades, a lovely place to walk. The Jerusalem municipality plants a tree in this forest for every child born in Jerusalem.
To sum up The Streetwise Jerusalem map is an up to date laminated accordian fold durable street map of Jerusalem featuring hundreds of religous, cultural, antiquity, hotels and shopping sites throughout Jerusalem.
