Arches, Harem esh-Sherif--On the ground once occupied by Solomon's Temple [Graphic]

St. Louis, 1894.
Creator:
Bain, Robert E. M
Category:
Harem Esh-Sherif (Jerusalem)
Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.3 x 17.7 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Deut., xxvi:19.)--'And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honor; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the Lord thy God, as he hath spoken.' We give a view above of the arches found on the area once occupied by Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. The temple as it stood upon this same spot was the center of the Jewish race, and to-day the Mosque of Omar that stands in its place is the pride and ornament of the city of Jerusalem. As God promised he did make of the Hebrews the highest of the nations of ancient times, and the city of Jerusalem the capital of the religion of humanity. And though the Holy City has been subjected to reverses one after another for thousands of years, it continues to be the most interesting city as far as its historic associations go to be found on the face of the globe."
