Jerusalem is a city in the Middle East, situated on a level in the Judaean Mountains between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea. It is one of the most seasoned urban communities in the world, and is viewed as heavenly to the three major Abrahamic religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Both Israel and the Palestinian Authority guarantee Jerusalem as their capital, as Israel keeps up its essential legislative foundations there and the State of Palestine at last foresees it as its seat of intensity; nonetheless, neither case is broadly perceived globally. Amid its long history, Jerusalem has been wrecked at any rate twice, assaulted multiple times, caught and recovered multiple times, and assaulted multiple times. The piece of Jerusalem called the City of David hints at first settlement in the fourth thousand years BCE, in the state of places to stay of traveling shepherds.

Jerusalem was named as «Urusalim» on old Egyptian tablets, likely signifying «City of Shalem» after a Canaanite god, amid the Canaanite time frame (fourteenth century BCE). Amid the Israelite time frame, noteworthy development action in Jerusalem started in the ninth century BCE (Iron Age II), and in the eighth century the city formed into the religious and regulatory focal point of the Kingdom of Judah. In 1538, the city dividers were remade for a last time around Jerusalem under Suleiman the Magnificent. Today those dividers characterize the Old City, which has been customarily separated into four quarters—referred to since the mid nineteenth century as the Armenian, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim Quarters. The Old City turned into a World Heritage Site in 1981, and is on the List of World Heritage in Danger.
