City of David
The City of David Archaeological Park holds some of the earliest artifacts in Jerusalem’s history. There are exhibits dating back to the fourth millennium BCE, all the way to the Byzantine era during the Middle Ages. Visitors to the City of David will first notice large city walls, a 13-meter stone building constructed in the 11th and 12th centuries BCE during the Jebusite period, as well as the remains of homes destroyed during the destruction of the First Temple by the Babylonians in 586 BCE. Tourists of the City of David can observe the rich history of Biblical Jerusalem from the time of Abraham to the creation of Jerusalem.
