Came here as part of a group tour. Site has an ancient water system. Apparently King Ahab's engineers dug a deep shaft and a horizontal tunnel through solid rock to reach the vital subterranean spring outside the city walls. You descend 180 steps through the shaft and walk through a 65-yard-long tunnel under the ancient city wall where you can... More

This is a great park to come to, lots of ruins. It was a shame that there as not as much emphasis on certain parts of history as there was on others. I guess you can't ft it all in as it is such a epic site in history. Worth the visit.

Megiddo has been the site of epic and decisive battles down the ages. It holds a strategic position in ancient history, overlooking the key pass through the Carmel Mountains and dominated the crossroads of ancient trade and military routes that linked Egypt with Mesopotamia and Asia Minor. It also boasts a spectacular view of the Jezreel Valley. Battles around Megiddo... More

Megiddo had been occupied by the Canaanites, Israelites, Assyrians and their presence shows in ruins of the structures of respective historical periods. There's a ticket pavilion at the park's entrance which includes souvenir shops and a restaurant. Unfortunately there's no way to bypass these facilities en route to the site. At the restaurant there was a large and noisy group... More

Wondeful place to be visited. LIke most of the national parks in Israel, it is an obligatory attraction to the ones that love history.

Staunch history dating as early as the Neolithic and Chalcolithic periods. During the biblical period this city was one of the most important in the Country. Don't miss the 187 steps down to the water system (unless you have a fear of heights). The water system is impressive to say the least! Tips: Start by watching the 10 minute video... More

This is an archaeological site called Tel Megiddo. The highlight is a beautiful view of the Valley of Jezreel which has much Biblical significance especially in the study of Eschathology. According to the Book of Judges, Deborah and Barak defeated Sisera nearby. Megiddo was fortified by King Solomon according to 1 Kings. A pagan worship area, a city gate, an... More
