Temple Mount Ascent

To product


Jerusalem during the end of the Second Temple period was known internationally for its beauty and grandeur. Thanks to recent excavations one can now walk its streets and be amazed by its splendor. 
Join us on a fascinating tour of sites that were just uncovered. Be amazed by the excavation in the Central (Tyropoeon) Valley where we will walk through a section of the Herodian Channel that is approximately 500 feet long. The tour will reach its climax as we behold the impressive foundations stones of the Western Wall at the foot of the Temple Mount. From there we will climb and exit onto the grandiose road where the Jewish pilgrims walked, two thousand years ago.


• Tour length is 1.5 hours.
• The Old City is closed off to private vehicles.
• In order to reach the City of David by foot, exit the Old City via the Dung Gate (the gate closest to the Western Wall Plaza). Turn left and shortly after (approximately 50 meters), make a right. The entrance to the City of David will be on your left hand side.
• Please notice that the tour includes walking up and down stairs.
• The tour includes walking through an underground tunnel.
