Pond at Jerusalem

One of the earliest references to Jerusalem was found in documents dating back to 1436.[1] Simon Sebag Montefiore states that the village dates back to this period, when 'pilgrimage to Jerusalem' was "wildly popular" but traveling to the city of Jerusalem was either not a practical proposition or it was too hostile a location.[2]
