*Modern Sites

The reconstruction of Jerusalem at the time of the second temple, on the grounds of the Holyland Hotel Jerusalem, enables a glimpse at yesterday's scenes.

A visit to the site serves as a time tunnel, carrying the visitor far into A.D. 66, before Jerusalem was ransacked by the Romans.

This unique site, on this magnificient hill, is built to a 1:50 scale with authentic construction materials - Jerusalem stone, Marmor, Steel all based upon historical material - the Mishna, the Gemara, Josephus Flaviuse's accounts, and more, all meticulously carried out.

The Holyland Model was envisaged and built by the late propriator of the Hotel, Mr. Hans Kroch, with the very special help by the late Prof. Avi Yonah of the Hebrew University. The original work was done throughout 1964-1967, and during these last ten years the Model was both renovated and brought up to date archeologicaly under the supervision of Prof. Zafrir.

The Model is indeed the focal point of any visit to Jerusalem today.


Open daily 8:00-22:00. Buses 99, 21, 21A

To be reached 5 minutes from the Model - Mt. Hertzel, Yad Vashem.
