In the heart of the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. The pillars were built by the Romans and used to be part of a Roman shopping street leading from today’s Damascus Gate into the present Jewish Quarter. This shopping street was and is still called CARDO. 

Above we see the Zemach Zedek Synagogue of Chassidut Chabad – Lubavitch.
