Jerusalem Sound Map

Israel Atlas (4]. Capital [4. CAPITAL CITY - SOUND SEGMENTATION Religious and municipal sounds, cacophony of co-existence Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. All the national institutions are located there: the perliament, the presidential residence, Herzi memorial mountain and more. All the religious sites are also located in Jerusalem - the Western Wall, The Church the Holy Sepulchre and E Aksa mosque. Mosques, churches, monasteries and synagogues are spread throughout the city. Every house of worship has its own Sounds, calling the community to prayer and commemorating religious occasions. Situated at the epicenter of the Israei-Palestinian conflict, Jerusalem is a place of extreme tension. Sirens are often heard blazing from police cars and ambulances. The diverse communities live in proximity to each other and the sounds they produce are constantly intertwined. Although they are produced at different times, often one can hear a cacophony of coexistence. The Hebrew University Bar lan Rd. Key: Rabin Blv.
