Panorama of the Valley of Hinnom

At the foot of the Cinematheque, and between the Cinematheque and the walls of the Old City lies the valley of Hinnom. This name Valley of Hinnom - Gue ben Hinnom is a term that appears a lot in the prophets of the Bible, and has been generally translated by Hell. One of the reasons may be that as said in Jeremiah 7:31:
And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of... Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.
This panorama was made from 4 photos stitched together, so that the Cinematheque building (at the right) appears extremely rounded.
