City of David, Jerusalem Overview

Birthplace of the city of Jerusalem where King David established his kingdom.

Situated outside the Old City's Dung Gates (Sha'ar Ashpot), is the City of David, the remains of a once majestic citadel ruled by Judean kings. Begin with the visitor centre where you can watch a 15 minute film telling the story of the city and gather information about the various sites and guided tours. The highlight of this place is the Hezekiah's Tunnel which was the aquaduct from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloam and known to have supplied water to the palace. The descent to the tunnel begins from the Warren Shaft and you can traverse the entire length of the tunnel, wading through water. Make sure you carry water proof shoes, comfortable clothes and a torch, because the wade is definitely worth it. The tunnel opens out to the Pool of Siloum where Christ is known to have miraculously restored the vision of a blind man. This will be a magnificent historically enriching tour.
