City of David

Four thousand years of history have been revealed in the City of David

On this Page:

Four thousand years of history have been revealed in the City of David, where visitors gain important understanding of Jerusalem’s unique place in the world.

The City of David Visitor Center has been built overlooking the fascinating remains of a monumental building some believe was the palace of Jerusalem’s kings.


A huge water cistern evokes the story of Jeremiah’s imprisonment (Jer. 38:6). The touring route descends via Warren’s Shaft and more recently discovered tunnels to the Gihon Spring where Solomon was crowned (1 Kings 1:33). The walk then continues to remnants of the actual Siloam Pool from Second Temple times, where the blind man healed by Jesus washed (John 9:11). The adventurous can then slosh 1,500 feet through Hezekiah’s Tunnel (2 Chron. 32:30), or take the “dry walk” through another ancient conduit.

 

Wet or dry, the City of David is a must-see on any Jerusalem itinerary.
