Book tours to Jerusalem and Bethlehem by Mantis Tour

Political turmoil has also destroyed the harmony of the place. Tourists are never targeted by the terrorists. There are breathtaking monuments from the World War II memorial to biblical ruins.


Prior to Columbus, Jerusalem was considered as the center of the world. Jerusalem is the place for long standing war between three great religions. The city thus has been destroyed several times and was again rebuilt. This is a place for more than 30000 inhabitants. The place has a long Ottoman wall of 2 mile length. During the visit to this region travellers found that the place is prone to endless struggles. The city is divided into four sectors – Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim. But the glory and fanatics of the city does not lie within the old walls. Beyond these walls lies Jewish neighborhood Mea She’arim. The religious scene is a bit complicated for the tourist depending on their religion. Generally the Christians have a more indulgence for the Jesus tomb, on the other hand the Catholics prefer the Holy Sepulchre. The holy church of Sepulchre is situated on the summit of Golgotha, a place where Jesus Christ was crucified. Different types of religious communities run chapels like the Greeks, Armenians, etc. So, getting your hands on the best package of tours to Jerusalem is a must for all globe trekkers.


While walking through the walls of Jerusalem to Bethlehem, the tourists just need a passport. This is the place where Jesus was born. When tourists arrive here they find that Bethlehem has turned into a proper and leading city of Palestine. This town does not look pretty as the town is totally under the cover of security. This city has got a special force of energy and is mostly cool during the dusks. There is a colorful Arabian market. Though this is a pure Arabian city yet there is mix of Muslim and Christian culture. The Muslims consider Jesus as a prophet and Mother Mary is also very much respected. In Quran there is a special chapter written on them. The terrorists have also made their presence in this part of the word. But beside these controversies mantis-tours-tours to Jerusalem is always worthy.
