The City of David

The City of David is ancient Jerusalem, the Biblical City of Kind David. The story of the City of David began 3,000 years ago, when King David decided to leave his city of Hebron and go to Jerusalem in order to unite the Israelites around one capital. The First Temple was constructed under King Solomon, King David’s son, on the top of Mount Moriah. Today, the City of David is an archeological site serving in the studying of that period of time and offering a glimpse into the past. The City of David is a charming small hill, located near the Western Wall and offering its visitors a magnificent view over fortifications and ancient walls, underground water tunnels, a dip in the waters of the Gihon Spring and a walk in Hezekiah's Tunnel- a water tunnel considered to be one of the technological wonders of the ancient world- with the help of a flashlight.
