Musrara (Arabic: مصرارة‎, Hebrew: מוסררה‎) also known by its Hebrew name, Morasha is a neighborhood in Jerusalem.

 

It is bordered by Meah Shearim and Beit Yisrael on the north.

Mea Shearim ("hundred gates") is one of the oldest Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem

It is populated mainly by Haredi Jews and was established in 1874 as the second settlement outside the walls of the Old City.

 

The Old City on the south and east.

The Old City is a 0.9 square kilometers walled area within the modern city of Jerusalem.

Until 1860, when the Jewish neighborhood, Mishkenot Sha'ananim, was established, this area constituted the entire city of Jerusalem.

The Old City is home to several sites of key religious importance: the Temple Mount and its Western Wall for Jews, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Christians, and the Dome of the Rock and al-Aqsa Mosque for Muslims. It was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site List in 1981.

The Russian Compound and Kikar Safra to the west.​

The Russian Compound is one of the oldest districts in central Jerusalem, including a large Russian Orthodox church and several former pilgrim hostels which are used as government buildings and for the Museum of Underground Prisoners.

The compound covers 68,000 m² or roughly 17 acres, between Jaffa Road, Shivtei Israel Street, and Street of the Prophets.
