Tel Hazor National Park

September 13th 2010

Tel Hazor National Park is located between Metula and Rosh Pina. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this national park is home to one of the most significant cities in ancient times due to its designation as a major trade route in the Near East. Tel Hazor is also rich in biblical history, as the land was first conquered by Joshua and later became the chief city of King Solomon. Today, archeological digs have produced many magnificent finds, including a palace and an ancient gate. There are two parts of the park for visitors to enjoy – an acropolis that spans for 30 acres, and a lower city spanning 175 acres. A museum located onsite displays antiques found that proves the importance of Hazor across many historical eras.
