Ariel view of the modern location of the City of David (Ophel) - Looking from South to North.  The white broken-line is where the ancient city of David was located (which is outside the city wall today).  The gold domed building is the Muslim shrine called the Dome of the Rock.  It is surrounded by ancient retaining wall of the Herodian Temple mount.  This picture gives distance perspective.  The Kidron valley can be seen on the left (?) side.
