CITYsights: King David's palace discovered?

Archaeological dig reveals many exciting new finds including part of King David's original palace.

The first installment in the new CITYsights video column takes you right back to where it all began, over 3,000 years ago, when King David left his old stomping ground in Hebron and headed for the hills of Jerusalem.

As you’ll see in the video, situated deep below ground in the Arab village of Silwan, just under the Temple Mount, is the City of David, the remains of the once-grand citadel where a dynasty of Judean kings ruled. As iTravelJerusalem guide Danny Herman says in the film, the proximity of the Gihon spring in the valley was the reason why people chose to settle in the area to begin with.
