Jerusalem's Old City is divided into four uneven quarters, although the current designations were introduced only in the 19th century.
The Armenian quarter is the smallest of the four and all residents are Armenian since the area is mainly  a monastery.
The Jewish Quarter is populated mainly by the Jews with just a handful of non-Jews living there. Following the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Jews were evicted by Jordanians. They were able to return after the Six-Day War of 1967.
The majority of the residents of the Christian and Muslim Quarters are Muslims though there is a large Christian presence in Christian Quarter due to the presence of the Church of Holy Sepulture which attracts thousands of Christian pilgrims.
