The Valley of the Kings- A Guided Tour

print

On this guided tour we will explore the section of the Kidron Valley which separates the City of David from the Mount of Olives and which served as the city’s municipal boundary for generations. During the Second Temple period, grandiose and ornate burial monuments were built in the Kidron Valley- Absalom’s  Tomb, the Tomb of Zechariah and Tomb of Benei Hezir. 

Join us on a fascinating tour through ancient landscapes with breathtaking views that tell the tale of the Kidron. Enjoy a theatrical performance and authentic music at the foot of Absalom’s Tomb.
