Yad Vashem

Yad Vashem was established by the Israeli Parliament in 1953 as a memorial for almost six million Jews who passed away during the Holocaust. Among several divisions of Yad Vashem are the historical museum presenting an overview of the period, and the art museum, which displays works depicting Jewish life during those trying times. The Avenue of the Righteous commemorates those who helped to rescue Jews.

The Israel Museum

The Israel Museum is one of the largest archaeological and art museums in the country. Most of the objects that have been found during archaeological excavations around the country, are stored and archived here. There are various sections in the museum such as the Shrine of The Book, Second Temple Model, European and Israeli art section and the Jewish Ceremonial Art Section; all these various sections will give you a deep insight into the Jewish culture. Besides, the educational programs, lectures, artistic events and guided tours held here give you a broader perspective of the Jewish history and culture.

The Old City of Jerusalem

One of the most important religious places in the world, the Old City of Jerusalem has a place of reverence in multiple cultures and faiths of the world. Covering about 90 hectares (222.40 acres) within Jerusalem as we know it today, this ancient site lies within fortified walls that were built in the 16th Century by Ottoman rulers. Categorized into four distinct precincts - Armenian, Christian, Jewish and Muslim Quarters, the Old City, it is believed, has always had protective walls around it since ancient times. Not only are these walls a testimony of advanced architectural skills of that generation, but they also highlight aesthetic values that are reflected in the intricate artwork and motifs that feature within them. Within these fabled walls lie some 200 historic monuments including the Western Wall, The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Dome of the Rock, al-Aqsa Mosque and Temple Mount, collectively steeped in a heritage that transcends time and cultures.

Mahane Yehuda Market

For short-term travelers seeking a fascinating look at Israeli culture or long-term residents hoping to strike a bargain, this crowded, yet inviting market is a meaningful experience. Fresh, inexpensive produce is in abundance but the market's specialties include colorful spices, pre-made salads and spreads and newly baked pastries. Rumor has it that the bakery stall, 'Marzi-Pan,' makes the world's best ruggalah (rolled chocolate pastries). Finding the centrally located market is a breeze. Finding the best route out of its maze of lanes may require some keen navigation skills.

Jerusalem Bird Observatory

If you love to bird watch or are interested in birds and wildlife, then a trip to the Jerusalem Bird Observatory is what you need. Boasting of an active ringing station, the bird observatory sees all kinds of Israeli birds coming here to feed. Besides bird watching, one can also watch a few nature movies and learn more about bird migration and bird banding. Various workshop for beginners on sketching, photography and bird watching are also held here. Special guided tours for large groups, school children and corporates can also be organized by the staff. Not only are the admission prices reasonable but the Jerusalem Bird Observatory is also great place to bring along your children.

Siloam tunnel

Built by Hezekiah in the 7th Century BCE, Hezekiah's Tunnels or Siloam Tunnel is beneath the City of David and is a wonderful tour for those who love history with a bit of adventure. The chronicles of this tunnel is mentioned in the Bible. The underpass was built to protect Jerusalem's water from the Assyrian raid and to bring the supply to the west of the City of David, thereby completely cutting off the water flow to the Assyrians. This ancient shaft was undiscovered for centuries and was only discovered in the 19th Century by Captain Charles Warren. It seems that there was a team of two digging teams at either ends of the tunnel. They carried out the digging by listening to the other's pickaxes and finally met at the middle. Marvel at this story as you explore this long passage while wading through the water. Narrow pathways, wet steps, ancient surroundings and stories that aren't just folklore, Hezekiah's Tunnels is indeed an interesting part of Jerusalem's history.
