Jerusalem in the time of Nehemiah (annotated)



Here we view the city from the southeast. Jerusalem was located on the eastern Hill, to the west of the Kedron Valley. The Siloam Pool, in the left foreground, is located at the place where the Central Valley meets the Kedron Valley. In the left foreground is a pile of stones, indicating the place where Nehemiah could not continue his night journey, riding on his animal, as there was no room for it to pass (Nehemiah 2.14).
