  3. 3. King David Citadel (The Tower of David )
  4. 4. The entrance to the Jaffa Gate
  5. 5. Jerusalem's citadel, known as the ''Tower of David'', is a historical and archaeological site of world importance. Over the generations it has become both a landmark and a symbol of the city
  6. 6. Inside the guardrooms of the citadel, the exhibition presents Jerusalem's history through a series of specially-designed models, illustrations, moving and static, and multi-media displays that relate the history in a chronological manner, focusing on the main events of each period
  7. 7. This is essentially a medieval fortress, with later additions. Its towers and ramparts offer splendid views of that part of Jerusalem where Old and New merge. The site of the citadel has always been the weak point in the city's defenses, compelling its rulers throughout history to fortify the site
  8. 8. Important Royal Discovery at the Museum. During the archaeological excavations of the Kishle in the grounds of the Tower of David Museum, remains from King Herod's palace were found
  9. 9. World-breaking record of visitors to exhibition - Over 1.3 million visitors came to the Tower of David Museum in 2000 to see Chihuly's Glass exhibition making it the most popular temporary exhibition for the millennium year

  14. 14. Mosque of Al - Aqsa - according to Islamic tradition, Mohammad arrived on the back of a winged horse named “el-Buraq” (“The Lightning”). After tying the horse to the Western Wall (still known in Arabic as “el-Buraq”), Mohammad prayed at al-Aqsa and then ascended to heaven
  15. 15. The south east corner of the Temple Mount
  16. 16. The structure of the Dome of the Rock is called, in Arabic, Qubat al-Sakhra (which is not the Mosque of Omar, and in fact, not a mosque at all.). It was built in 691 by the Caliph Abd al-Malik (who founded the first Arab town in Israel – Ramla), and is believed to be the oldest and most intact Muslim structure in the Middle East
