“Everyone has a city, and its name is Jerusalem” wrote prominent Israeli poet Natan Yonatan.
Pilgrims of all religions choose to come to Jerusalem to follow their religious sentiments; to see the places they admire; and to walk in the footsteps of the saints who have molded the essence of their faith. Throughout history, representatives of many different empires ruled Jerusalem, leaving their mark upon the city by erecting magnificent buildings representing their own culture.
Last month, Israel Post issued a 10-stamp sheet and a five-stamp booklet celebrating five highlights of Jerusalem tourism. The stamps feature illustrations of Ramparts Promenade; Jaffa Road; Via Dolorosa; First Train Station; and Jerusalem Biblical Zoo.
