Southern Wall Excavations

In these excavations, that are close to the Herodian southern wall of the Temple Mount, many findings from the Second Temple Period have been made. The magnificent street of shops under Robinson’s Arch, the steps leading up to the triple Huldah Gates, that served as the main entrance to the Temple Mount in the Second Temple times and the many ritual baths for the pilgrims are only a part of the impressive findings uncovered here. There is a large Visitors’ Centre, the Davidson Center, on the site, which uses films and exhibits to illustrate how the city looked during different periods in its history.
