Comments: A view of Jewish tombstones looking out towards the old city of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. Rocks are placed on the graves as a sign of respect for the dead. The Muslim Dome of the Rock can be seen in the background. The Mount of Olives is a mountain ridge in East Jerusalem with three peaks running from north to south. The highest, at-Tur, rises to 818 meters (2,683 ft). It is named for the olive groves that once covered its slopes. The Mount of Olives is associated predominantly with Jewish and Christian traditions but also contains several sites important in Islam. The mount has been used as a Jewish cemetery for over 3,000 years and holds approximately 150,000 graves.
