A Muslim girl on her way somewhere an early morning in the Old City of Jerusalem.
Country: The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan • Year: 1954 • Series: King Hussein II & Landmarks • Pictured: Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem • Extra Information: Al-Aqsa Mosque (Arabic: ٱلْـمَـسْـجِـد الْاَقْـصَى‎, translit. Al-Masjid al-Aqṣā, IPA: [ʔælˈmæsdʒɪd ælˈʔɑqsˤɑ], "the Farthest Mosque"), located in the Old City of Jerusalem, is the third holiest site in Islam. The mosque was built on top of the Temple Mount, known as Haram esh-Sharif in Islam. Muslims believe that Muhammad was transported from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to Al-Aqsa during the Night Journey. Islamic tradition holds that Muhammad led prayers towards this site until the 17th month after his migration from Mecca to Medina, when Allāh directed him to turn towards the Kaaba in Mecca. • Face Value: 100 Fils - Jordanian Fils • Emission: Definitive _____________________________________________________________ #Jordan #thehashemitekingdomofjordan #Jordanian #Jerusalem #1954 #1950s #alaqsa #alaqsamosque #Landmark #HolySite #harameshsharif #thirdholiestsiteinislam #Islam #Religion #Architecture #Mosque #Building #InstaJordan #PlaceofWorship #JordanianFils #Definitive #philately #philatelic #philategram #philatelist #stamp #stamps #postagestamps #stampcollection #stampcollecting

Out of all the holly sites in Jerusalem I felt at peace the most here, the most controversial site with tough security controls, police officers and metal detectors - TEMPLE MOUNT. Despite all that, the energy here is very strong, not sure how to describe it, but I did not want to leave. May be because it was early morning, may be because the access to this site is restricted and there are no crowds, or may be because this little kitten came to me and started to play, I mean he was rubbing against me, playing with me, rolling on his back in front of me, climbing on me... he made me feel special, he chose me ❤️ #templemount #oldcityjerusalem #wonderful_places #holysite #jerusalem #palestine #israel
THIS IS IT! The most controversial religious site in the world. This is the holy site 2 religions are fighting for... yet it is the most peaceful spot in Jerusalem. #templemount #domeoftherock #jerusalem #holysite #jerusalemoldcity #palestine #israel
Thousands of Jews pray in middle of the night at Jerusalem's Western Wall in preparation for the Day of Atonement. Ben Gurion Airport will shut down for Yom Kippur tomorrow evening, as the entire country will come to a standstill for 25 hours.

Not how I was expecting it to be but there you have it, that’s Bethlehem, once part of Israel it now lies in the Palestinian Territories. A friend messaged me yesterday asking if I was on some kind of a religious quest for the true meaning of life ?!! Loaded question, made me laugh but also think 🤔 Despite my Protestant upbringing I don’t think I have ever been exposed to religion on this scale until now. I am a firm believer, always have been, but I don’t practice organised religion, I find it too restrictive for self expression. Besides, living abroad and traveling the world has taught me to respect and embrace all cultures and faiths, I take the best out of every experience and interaction and make it my own... so I guess that makes me an Omnist (I looked it up on google!) and I’m very comfortable with that. So what made me go to Bethlehem or any of the other holy sites on this trip ? Just two things - a curious mind and an awesome camera 😊 #Bethlehem #palestinianterritories #jerusalem #israel #holysite #travel #travelbug #travelphotograpy #canon #canon70d #canonphotography #wanderlust #adventure #curious #photography #cityscape

Today we celebrate the Most Holy Name of Mary. Mary represents the ultimate goodness of God. She’s our loving mother, our protector, our peacemaker. We pray to Mother Mary today, to help unite people who are divided. ... "Mary, give me your Heart: so beautiful, so pure, so immaculate; your Heart so full of love and humility that I may be able to receive Jesus in the Bread of Life and love Him as you love Him and serve Him in the distressing guise of the poor." -Blessed Mother Teresa ... #VirginMary #Mother #MotherTeresa #peace # love #support #holyland #pilgrimage #christian #Jerusalem #christianlife #christianity #catholic #mytravelgram #travelphotography #holysite #Bethlehem #pray #visittheholyland #pilgrim #pilgrimage #faith #christianliving #christianfamily #strength #faith #CatholicFaith

Living my dreams one at a time ✔️ . . This is a big day for me. Ive been obsessed with the Incas since I was ten years old. I would read books about their archeological discoveries, hoping for a chance to see them in person. Today I did just that, after hiking in to the holy place. Point is: don’t give up on your dreams, you’ll get there! #machupicchu #machupicchuperu #inca #incatrail #holysite #wonderoftheworld #UNESCO #dreamscape #travel #travelperu #travelgram #trek #trekking
On the edge of the mad city, between the old road and a halfmade motorway, people come to leave their offerings to the Shamanic gods of the land - prayer scarves, bottles of vodka and broken instruments pile up on this cairn of rubble called an 'oovo', in honour of our connection with the earth and sky. #mongolia #ulaanbaatar #shamanism #bbc @bbcworldservice @bbc #radio #documentary #asia #buddhism #shamanic #cairn #holysite

Floating beauty ⛩
Happy Janmashtami, festival celebrating the birth of Lord Krishna! So, my friend @nisha_tanwar suggested I go to the Brahma temple, one of five most sacred pilgrimage sites for Hindus, for the “experience.” That it certainly was! There were swarms of people barefoot all rushing to get into the temple. A guy saw me looking confused and helped me through the crowd and showed me where to put my shoes and bag. Then guided me through the temple and gave me a tour and took me through the prayers. Then he took me to this priest/guru at the lake and I did the whole ceremony thing next to the sacred lake and then donated rupees by putting it on a coconut and saying a prayer. It’s all about the kids, ya know. I do feel more blissed and blessed, though. 😂🤷🏻‍♀️😍 At the start of the prayer, he went through blessing my family, my country 🇺🇸 and Obama. Seriously, we stopped to laugh for a moment of understanding and appreciation. God bless America. 🇺🇸🇮🇳🙏💚☸️ #harekrishna #brahma #pushkar #holywater #holysite
Jerusalem. Maybe I should switch gears this Christmas. I wish I could, but it's work. Not much matters anymore about the other place. I mean I love the land just...NM.

📍Jerusalem, Israel Just by observing how respectful and cautious Jewish people are before visiting the Wailing Wall can you understand its holiness. #SarahTakesPhoto #Travel #Travelgram #Instatravel #Photography #TravelPhotography #InstaJerusalem #InstaIsrael #Jerusalem #Israel #MiddleEast #Kotel #WesternWall #WailingWall #Wall #Jew #Jewish #Judaism #Holy #HolySite #Sony #A7R #SonyA7R
