Here are some pictures looking across the Kidron Valley, which runs north and south between the old city of Jerusalem (and the temple mount) and the Mount of Olives. Notice that both sides of the Kidron are filled with tombstones, and descending down the Mount of Olives into the valley and up it shifts from Jewish, Christian and Muslim graves. A picture of an olive tree on the Mount of Olives and then the “beauty” of Gethsemane.
