Here we are, in Ancient Jerusalem.

Here is a map of the topography of Jerusalem, and surrounding area.

Image

Note that the Temple and the Upper City both sit upon ridges; thus, the lower city sits in a valley known as the Tyropoeon Valley.

Here is a simple map providing scale.

Image

Here is a map giving details of the locations of prominent features of the city, of which all residents are aware.

Image

Legend:

1. Temple Plaza
2. Palace Compound
5. Pool of Siloam
6. Rose Gardens
11. City Archives
13. Phasael Tower
14. Hippicus Tower
15. Mariamme Tower
17. Ginnoth Gate
19. Upper Market
21. Hasmonean Palace
22. Town Hall
23. Theatre
24. David's Tomb
25. Palace of the High Priests
36. The Temple
38. Barracks Gate
39. Barracks
41. Temple Gate

(unmarked points are notable areas after the time we are dealing with. I left them out to simplify)

Here is some flavor, so you all have an idea of what the city actually looks like:

Image

Temple Plaza, to the right of the image, leading up to the temple steps and gate.

Image

The Pool of Siloam

Image

From left to right - Hippicus, Phasael, and Mariamne Towers

Image

The Hasmoneon Palace

Image

The Tomb of David

Image

Palace of the High Priests

Image

The Temple (upper left corner provides interior view)

Image

The North Gate (not marked on the map, far right corner)

More to come. Also, by the way, these photos are all of models, so if the scale of the trees in the background seems off, that's why. Don't let it confuse you.
