Overview

The Huldah Gates are located to the south of the once grand Temple Mount. One of the most archeologically and religiously rich sites, the Temple Mount has had a rather turbulent history. Originally built as 'Solomon's Temple', it was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE. Then several years later, the Jewish people were allowed by the King Darius to re-enter Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple and the city; but even this did not stand strong for too long, as it was completely ripped apart by the Roman emperor Herod, and another, much more grand Temple was built in its place. This one was finally destroyed by the Romans circa 70 A.D. However, some of its remains have been excavated in the modern years, and are now is one of the most historically rich places in the world. Do visit the Huldah Gates if you're a history buff, or even if you have a keen interest in architecture or archeology.
