You can enter the Christian Quarter through the New Gate, although there doesn’t appear to be much going on from that entrance. You pass a few shops, hotels, churches and such, but it almost feels deserted. But continue walking to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and things start to get more interesting. You start to pass the bazaar area with shops on either side of the narrow walkways. Note that you can enter the bazaar area quicker by entering via Jaffa Gate and walking straight down to where the bazaar area starts. There are signs in the bazaar area pointing you to the church, the gates, and such. So if you have time, just let yourself wander and explore – as you will be able to find your way out again. If not, most people speak English, among other languages and so you can ask for directions. Be sure to bargain in the bazaar area. Of course, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is a must see. But also try to see the Holy Name of Jesus church at the Latin Patriarch area, as that is a very beautiful church.

Most are heading to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Many junk shops. Several good artifact shops. Well worth the wander. Fifth station has what is reputed to be best Falafels in Israel.

Like olden days

The history everywhere in Jerusalem is just astonishing and this really is a wonderful find in the centre of the city that joins the artery of the city. You really do have to go and see for your self!
