Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I.Chron., xv:I.)--'And David made him houses in the city of David, and prepared a place for the ark of God, and pitched for it a tent.' We pass through the gate called Zion's Gate in the south wall on the summit of the ridge of Zion. At this place we are on the height held by the Jebusites until David took it by storm. It was the highest point within the limits of the city. It was here, or in this immediate neighborhood, where this Armenian church and convent now stand that David built his house and the household of his families, and here was the place for the ark of the Lord before the temple was built. The Armenian convent is one of the richest and largest in the city. There are some tamarisk trees in front of it said to have been planted by Herod. Within the convent is the church of St. James, the place where, according to tradition, St. James was beheaded." See 5413BAI/LVii139CAJS (Voyager # 362351)
