This model which is something like 40 metres long and 30 metres wide is most helpful to understanding Jerusalem at the time of the second temple.

This attraction has been moved to a site next to the Dead Sea Scrolls building at the Israeli Museum. It makes the present structure of the Old City, particularly the Western Wall and the Temple Mount, intelligible. A coffee shop is adjacent.

It was awesome to get a glimpse of the blueprint of what the old temple in Jerusalem looked like in addition to the recounting of the period's people and events by the guide.

It's located in the Israel Museum grounds. Take a headset at the entrance, it explains all about the Jerusalem of the time. fascinating to see how the city was laid out then and try to connect it with what we can see today.

This model is now at the Israel Museum and has been adapted to be topigraphically correct. There are clear explanations and the surrounding area - and the Museum itself are lovely as well.
