Jerusalem is a holy city to the Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Each religion has a storied history with Jerusalem, and some of the most sacred places for each are found in this ancient city. Jewish interests are rooted in the struggle of King David to capture Jerusalem and build a temple there. Christian interests come from the close relationship that Jesus had with the city, and Christians once believed Jerusalem to be the center of the world. For Muslims, Jerusalem served as the first qibla (direction of prayer), early mosques were built to face Jerusalem, and Muhammad, who is considered to be a messenger for God, often visited the city.
