Zion is one of the Bibles earliest names for Jerusalem, mentioned in the Bible when David first established the city as his capital.
The Tomb of David on Mount Zion has been a place of pilgrimage for centuries. In another part of this ancient complex is the Upper Room, the place of the Last Supper.
Across from it is the Dormition Abbey, built in 1898, where Catholic tradition marks the Assumption of Mary.
One of the Old City's eight gates, the Zion Gate, connects Mount Zion to the Old City.
