4th in the "Views of Jerusalem" Numismatic Bullion Series
The City of Jerusalem today developed on the site of the historical City of David. About three thousand years ago, David captured Jerusalem from the Jebusites and made it his capital. His son, King Solomon, built the Holy Temple on Mount Moriah, on the southern slopes of which the City of David spreads out. To the east, the City of David is bordered by the Kidron Valley and to the west, by the Tyropoeon Valley.
For David, there were advantages in capturing this area; it lay in a strategic position near to the Gihon Spring water source and it was surrounded by mountains –the Temple Mount to the north, Mount Zion to the west, the Abu Tor ridge to the south and Mount of Olives to the east - all providing a natural means of defense. In addition, a good reason for David to establish his capital here was that this area was in the hands of the Jebusites and did not belong to any of the Tribes of Israel. Therefore, it was the ideal place in which to unite the people.
