JERUSALEM WEATHER

The City of David is the birthplace of the city of Jerusalem, the place where King David established his kingdom. One of the most fascinating parts of the City of David is the tunnel of Shiloh – a 533-meter-long tunnel that was carved during the period of King Hezkiyahu. The tunnel extends from the city to the well at Shiloh, and is an astounding engineering feat. Its builders carved the tunnel through solid rock beginning from opposite ends and succeeded in making the two sides meet in the middle. If you visit the archaeological park, you can walk through the tunnel which is partially filled with water, and come out at the pools of Shiloh. Touring the City of David is like taking a walk through ancient history!
