Megiddo (or Armageddon) is a fairly impressive tel. It dates back to the ancient Canaanites and beyond, but has also been occupied by the Egyptians, Assyrians, Biblical Israel and more. Decent views of the countryside. A little pricey.

On our church trip to Israel, we visited the site of Megiddo. This is a beautiful place in Israel and I would highly recommend it if you are touring Israel.

This was part of our tour of tracing the travels of Jesus and the apostles throughout the Holy Land. By the time we got to this site, we had had about enough of ruins.

Known to most Christians as the future site of Armageddon, this is an amazing archaeological site that dates back at least 9000 years. So far, 26 different occupation levels have been excavated! I suggest spending at least a half a day so you can see everything that is on the site, including the museum.

Megiddo was destroyed and built again dozens of time, and this has made it a symbol of human history. Indeed, it's also a place where the last battle will take place - Armageddon! The story and the site are just sacinating. And, possible, the most impressive is an undeground water supply system built over 2800 years ago by the Jewish... More

This national park is certainly worth the visit for the price of NIS 29. They are still working on improving the park in order to make it more accessable for handicapped people

Historic city which the Bible says was conquered by Joshua and which the archaeological record supports. Solomon built Gates here and the similarity with Gates at Gezer and Hazor encourages this view. Don't miss the water system!

Megiddo is fascinating because of its location and role in history. The term "Armageddon" (the ultimate battle between the forces of good and evil) comes from the Hebrew "Har (mountain) Megiddo". This ultimate battle is mentioned in the Christian Book of Revelations and is a precursor to the 2nd coming or messianic age. This mountain fortress overlooks the Jezebel Valley... More

The view from the top of the hill is amazing and spectacular. Megiddo's valley is believed to be the Armageddon valley where the devastating wars of good and bad at the end of the apocalypse will take place. Thus, it's actually an amazing spectacular view of the past and future .........
