The Israeli capital was listed among other nearby destinations including Giza and Saqqara in Egypt and Aqaba in Jordan.

 Jerusalem was named one of TIME magazine’s 50 most extraordinary travel destinations, as part of the publication’s third annual list of the World’s Greatest Places.

TIME solicited nominations for the list—including countries, regions, cities and towns—from its international network of correspondents and contributors.

“The locations must be enthralling, exciting, and offer new or advanced experiences to meet the criteria for TIME,” according to the outlet.

The Tower of David Museum’s 360 degree view of Jerusalem was featured by TIME as one of the must-see attractions in the city.
