About Jerusalem

Jerusalem Coat of ArmsMap is showing Jerusalem, seat of government and largest city of Israel, the holy city of the Jews, sacred also to Christians and Muslims, located in the Judaean hills about 32 km (20 mi) from the Jordan River and about 30 km west of the northern tip of the Dead Sea.

The city was settled in the 4th millennium BCE.

The city was divided between the states of Israel and Jordan until the Israelis occupied the whole city in June 1967 and proclaimed it the capital of Israel although it is not accepted as such by the United Nations. The city is home to the Knesset, the legislative branch of the Israeli government, the seat of Israeli Supreme Court and High Court of Justice and other government institutions.

Jerusalem has a population of about 900,000 inhabitants (in 2014). Spoken languages are Hebrew (official), English, and Arabic.
