If you have any interest in history and archaeology, this place more than repays a visit. Get a combined ticket with the nearby City of David and you can go from there to here through the underground tunnels. It’s astonishing to be able to walk...More

This has to be the most amazing yet not-frequently-enough visited archaeological site in Jerusalem. A combination of history, rligion and architecture. It's adjacent to the right of the Western Wall Kotel Plaza. I visited on the evening of Tisha B"av, when ten of thousands of...More
