Bethel Tour of Jerusalem

Bethal is known as the ‘House of God’ and is located in north of Jerusalem. The third bible land tours of Israel made everybody happy with new findings in Jerusalem and Nazareth in the year November, 2011. Throughout Israel, you will come across plenty of archaeological diggings. Some of the places to visit during Bethel Tour of Jerusalem are –

1- Herod Steps – This is a long series of stone steps built during the Roman period and begins from the Pool of Siloam. In fact, this Pool of Siloam was discovered in the recent past, since for many years the experts were emphasizing the wrong pool.

2- Gihon Spring – This appears to be four defensive towers of stone which were constructed thousands of years in the past. Today, many university students are digging and clearing the rubble. These towers actually protected the source of Jerusalem water.

3- Nazareth – There is this newly opened village known as Nazareth village. This village is a complete re-development of Nazareth, exactly the way it used to be around 2,000 years in the past.

4- Masada – Masada is an ancient palace located in the South of Israel. There have been a lot of changes that has taken place in this palace over the past one year. They have constructed new rooms, walkways have been made better, more shelter has been constructed to protect from the blazing sun etc.

There are so many places to visit when you plan your Bethel tour of Jerusalem, the capital city of Israel and this is one such tour which we must not miss out visiting and plan making such a tour with our family and friend at least once during a period of time. The tour will remind you of the life of the past ancient history of the medieval period. You can contact any Bethel Tour operators within your city for a package trip.
