Pinsteps. Underground passage from the city of David to the Temple Mount, Jerusalem

This underground passage from Gihon Spring to the southern tip of the Temple Mount is one of Jerusalem's most exciting archaeological discoveries. The tunnel passes through the sewer channel of the time of King Herod the Great. Its cobbled pavement is the oldest street in Jerusalem since King David. It was along this street, about seven hundred meters long, that Jewish pilgrims were climbed the temple mountain after having bathed in the Siloam basin. If the passage is closed due to weather conditions, you need to go back to the main entrance to the park City of David.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на epraisman@gmail.com и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Jerusalem behind the city walls

This trip is the full-day walking tour to Jerusalem for those who have already been in the city more than one time. We will start the day with two amazing museums that discover the real streets of Jerusalem from the time of King David and King Herod the Great. The city of King David impresses with its antiquity and authenticity. The Jerusalem archaeological park - Davidson Center shows the buildings of the vicinity of the Second Jerusalem Temple, its streets, and even shops of artisans. We will visit the Wailing Wall. We will walk along the southern walls of the old city to the Sultan's Pool and climb a little up the slope to the old windmill in the first suburb built behind the city walls. From the quarter of Moses Montefiori, we will approach the legendary King David Hotel and stop for a rest in Independence Park. At the end of the day, we will take a leisurely walk and eat at the most colorful, tasty, and famous city market - Mahane Yehuda.
