Jerusalem, the eternal city, is located in the Judean hills at the boundary of the desert between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea. It is one of the oldest cities, first mentioned in the Egyptian Execration Texts (c. 19th century BCE), and established during the early Canaanite period (approximately 2400 BCE). It is considered holy to the three major Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam
