At the entrance we were welcomed by a very nice guard. The site gave a good impression about the history of the Tell Megiddo. Also the fact that historical figures from the bible (kings Salomon and Achab) impressed us. And don't forget the sight on the plains of Yizreel. And that in the light of the Armageddon gave us a...

The Visitor's Center has a great scale model of the site and a movie that explains the history. The site has a wonderful Canaanite altar, a reconstructed Solomonic Gate, a water system that is fun to walk through. Well worth your time!

Highly recommended for biblical and historical buffs who love slogging up dusty trails under the blazing sun (or exploring underground water tunnels) a la Indiana Jones. The "tel" (hilltop fort) overlooks the fertile Jezreel valley and has seen numerous battles involving ancient Egyptians up to invading British and Arabs (who routed the Ottomans in 1918).

Site of Armageddon, it's nice to know where The End will happen. If, however, the world doesn't end while you're visiting, you get to walk around the ruins and get a nice view of the surrounding countryside. The actual archaeology/ruins, while significant, are limited compared to some other sites (no mosaics, ancient streets & columns, etc.). It's really more about... More

This place is also called Armagedon. It is very calm and beautiful place. It deserves a visit. So nice.

Don't miss this stop. Our group traveled to the area in February and we climbed on top of Tel Megiddo and read scripture and enjoyed the view. It was very cold and blustery but it didn't stop of from enjoying the ruins and the amazing water structure built. I can well believe that this is the future site of Armageddon!

This is meant to be the site where Armageddon will occur. The ruins had been cared for and were in good condition. It was a natural hill compared to the surrounding low and flat area. Best way to get here is with a hire car. You can see horse stables, baths and more. There is a massive water gathering hole... More

I stopped here because it was on my way towards Genesaret lake and I was curious of the site. I knew it was an important control point on the road between Egypt and Mesopotamia in antiquity so no wonder the site was destroyed and rebuilt 26 times. It does control the mountain pass and it gives an excellent view of... More

Very interesting historical and culture site. There tours with various languages and ages... Do not skip "aquadook" (an old water system), which was discovered a few years ago. Recommend to continue to one of local authentic restaurants around (need 10-15 min driving

This was a very interesting site, especially with the aid of the audio headset. Do get one to guide you.
