This was a view looking westward from the Mt. of Olives above the Jewish graveyard. Parts of the wall of Jerusalem are quite close to or on Roman era wall lines, there were remains of Crusader efforts, and then the Turkish walls. The city dipped in the middle along a N - S axis valley. Mt. Zion was along the southern wall near the top left of this panorama. The old Jewish temple was on Mt. Moriah where the golden domed Islamic building is today. The city of Jerusalem during the time of David was near the left edge of the photo above the Kidron Valley that sloped from right to left below the eastern wall.
