Synopsis by Forrest Spencer
The ancient city of Jerusalem has been a holy site for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. Its rich history is an archeologist's dream and a political hotbed of governance for religious leaders. In this three-part series, explore the treasures of Jerusalem with a group of highly skilled archaeologists and historians as they uncover the truths and sources about the legends and myths that have survived for millenniums, like the fates of the Golden Candelabra and the cross that bore the crucified Jesus Christ. Also on the two-and-a-half hour documentary, visit Jerusalem's holy mosque -- The Dome of the Rock -- with its gleaming walls, and learn why Mohammed chose this site as the gateway to Heaven.
