Just when you think you reached the end of the city limits, you see several more miles of condominiums, houses apartments, synagogues, mosques and churches.
Jerusalem is a large city located in Israel. The Middle Eastern city sits on massive hills, valleys and mountain lines that are a part of the Judaean Mountains between the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean. It is one of the oldest cities in the world. The earliest settlement dates back to the Early Bronze Age (c. 3000-2800 BCE). It is also considered to be one of the holiest cities in the world.
Inside the Holy City you will find three major religions that include the Jewish followers, the religion of Islam and Christians. However, not all of the religions see eye to eye, which is why walls have been in place dividing different areas for hundreds of years.
The city is composed of 850,000 residents. Another 300,000 residents or more live just outside of those limits, but still consider themselves to be a part of Jerusalem. So, in reality you could say about 1.2 million people live in the Jerusalem area of Israel.
