City of David - Background

 

The City of David is the oldest part of Jerusalem and is situated right outside the walls of the Temple Mount. The first excavations took place in the 19th Century and the City of David is today open to visitors in a very modern visitors centre, making use of modern technology to illuminate its very long and rich history in an easily absorbable way. This is where King David established the capital of his kingdom and where his son later built the first Temple for the Arch of Covenant to rest, and this central part of Jerusalem has ever since been the focus of world history.
