The Jerusalem Project Virtual Tour


Source: Jerusalem Project


The starting point of the Jerusalem Project online virtual tour is on Har Hazaitim, the Mount of Olives, enabling the viewer a panoramic view of the Old City of Jerusalem. One can take a tour of the various Jewish sites in the Old City and its vicinity, beginning with the Hebrew University on Har Hatzofim – Mount Scopus, in the east, through the Yemin Moshe neighborhood in the west. The tour offers a 360 degree view of the various sites, giving you the feeling that you are actually on-site.


Noticing the lack of centrality of the Jewish national and heritage sites in Google Streets project, Tamir Orbaum decided that the Old City of Jerusalem should be accessible to anyone in the world, and so he went and created the Jerusalem Project on his own. Single handedly, with no support of any kind; Tamir documented the streets of Jerusalem, and using unique technology, he created a virtual tour of the Jewish Quarter and its environs.
