I could remember of some because of Bible, but it was kinda hard to guess. It’s clearly your best work on here, and it needs to be featured asap! Nominated!

This is a wonderful quiz. Well done!

A thing, though: Maybe change the color of the writing in the Armenian quarter, since it doesn't contrast with the background and is invisible.

Awesome quiz! This is some awesome use of CSS. It was really nice seeing all the landmarks light up and the wording fill in. I don't know a whole lot about Jerusalem so I didn't get a whole lot, but I still think it's a great effort, so nominated and hope to see more of these from you!

Thanks for your kind words and nomination! 😀 I'll make another soon enough.

It took me an hour to do all that CSS, the most difficult being all those texts. Anyway, I'm proud of how it turned up.

Please change the name of Wailing Wall to Western Wall. "Wailing Wall" is a derogatory and outdated name.

I'm sorry if you were offended by it. The SVG I got from Wikipedia has it labelled as "Wailing Wall" and being a newcomer to such complex SVGs, I cannot really do anything in the meantime.

However, Western Wall is accepted as a type-in among other names from Hebrew and Arabic.

Hi, could you make a blog, about how you created this map?

Hi! I don't think that's necessary. There are several SVG quizzes 1000x times better than this and which are also original creations. I found this SVG on Wikimedia (which means I didn't create it) and just changed the colours and hid the texts until guessed using Inkscape. If you need any help, you can ask me. :)
