This is my first stitched panorama, never tried stitching before.


Jerusalem, panorama of the Western Wall and the Temple Mount, view from the Jewish Quarter of the Old City.

Kotel ha-Ma'aravi (The Western Wall) - the holiest place of all Jews. This is what's left of the outer wall of the Second Temple, which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 C.E.
The Dome of the Rock - a shrine, which was built around the rock on which Abraham bound his son Isaac to be sacrificed before God's intervention. From here according to the Koran Mohammed ascended to heaven.
A gray dome on the right is the al-Aksa mosque - the third holiest Islamic shrine after Mecca and Medina.

The panorama is stitched from 3 images and downsized from a 6400x2500 pixels image, so some details are lost

Very nice picture, great job! They put the dome at the wrong spot though. Abraham was on another hill when he was sacraficing Isaac, before God intervened and sent and Angel to stop him. He was on a hill, Mt Moriah, that was later renamed Golgatha.

Thanks, Winemaker.

Mt. Moriah is still called Mt. Moriah (at least in Hebrew) or The Temple Mount. It is in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City now, but this is still the same place. The whole area of the Old City is just one square kilometer, so distances are not that great. The crucifixion took place outside the city walls, at Calvary (or Golgatha)just to the North of the Damascus Gate of the Old City. At least this is one of the theories that exist. Anyway, I am not into Biblical studies that much.

If you are interested to see more pics, they are here:

Thanks for your comments.

I looked at your photos of Jerusalem, Alex. Very nice! Thanks for sharing them. And that's a good job on stitching the three photos together.
