The Kidron Valley

The Kidron Valley, also known as valley of Jehoshaphat, is the place where a lot of biblical events happened. You will find it on the eastern side of The Old City, separating the Temple Mount from the Mount of Olives. It continues through the dry Judean Desert (West Bank) towards the Dead Sea. In the Kidron Valley, you will encounter the highest concentration of old tombs. You will pass old cemetries from Muslims and Jews which are closely associated with the day of judgement. You will also see the "Golden Gate" which has been bricked-up. Jews believe that the Messiah will come through that gate when he returns to Jerusalem.
