flowers of Jerusalem - Terra Santa

despite that the meaning of "Terra Santa" in Latin as "Holy Land", Terra Santa and Holyland in Jerusalem are different places, very far from each other.
Terra Santa is Place de France, while Holyland is the most ugly urban project at the site of the Holy Land Hotel and the model of the Second Temple, surrounded by Holyland Park. No more Park or model even not hotel, but the example of terrible missunderstanding between beautiful high green hill and beautiful architecture, resulting in most ugly result.
