Touring the Streets of Jerusalem - Together

Queen Helena Slept Here

Back in October I discussed the Shiloach, or the City of David.

If you've tried parking in the Givati parking lot at the entrance to this neighborhood any time in the past half year you've noticed the construction site that made this small parking lot even smaller. Actually it is an archeological dig.

It turns out, according the Jerusalem Post report, that they found a major 2nd Temple period palace believed to be the palace of Queen Helena (who also has a street named after her in Jerusalem - though not one we've looked at just yet in this blog).

The discoveries lately in the City of David have been amazing.
