  • the herodian quarter tells the story of the city at the second temple period, how luxurious the city was before the destruction by the romans. it is hard to understand the meening of all that without ...  more »
  • This is an amazing place-excavation of a huge House of the period of the first century, which probably belonged to the family of the high priest! Surprised me the size of the home, the presence on its territory 3-4 mikv for ritual ablution, various vessels that were used there. This is a very interesting place to visit, to touch the history of the second Temple period. The most interesting thing about these excavations built a new House. The museum itself under the House, so it is easy to miss.

  • A really spectacular find right in the Old City. Very easy to get to and fun to explore. It is well presented archaeology with English language signs. Also very cool on a hot day. Very worthwhile stop on a tour of Jerusalem.
  • This is one of the most over looked greens the old city has to offer. You walk through the charred remains of structures which stood before the destruction of the second temple. The detail that has survived provides incredible insight into the time period.
  • Fantastic. When I saw the sign for an archeological museum, I figured it would be an array of potsherds, like I've seen before, even in the Tupperware Museum, But the stairs lead down to a residential neighborhood, probably lived in by Kohamim, Temple priests, who wanted to live close to their job. Because they went to the Temple every day, they needed to immerse in a mikvah every day, and some or all had their own mikvah, built to the same dimensions still used today. I wasn't looking for it, so I found it, but you may have to ask someone for directions. It's just a block east of Churba Square and the Churba Synagogue on the less busy street. You can see it in 15 minutes, or you can spend an hour, imagining you're on your way to visit friends.
  • The "Herodian Quarter" archaeological museum presents rich finds from the first century CE, when the area was a wealthy resindential zone in ancient Jerusalem, most likely inhabited by Jewish priests who operated the contemporeus Temple. The thick ash layer found covering the whole site is undoubtfully the devestating destruction caused by the Romans when the conquored Jerusalem in the bloody summer of year 70 CE.
