Me @ "THE TOWER of KING DAVID"

>> Tuesday, July 21, 2009

Sharing you all my short visits to "The Tower of King David" last Sunday. It was another treasure written on my mind and in my heart touching , reading and going around the 2000 years old citadel era of Jerusalem's history. Please visit the Museum for more history written there.

This is the first image of David's city way back **10th century BCE** prior to the building of the Temple of Mount Moriah.The area was called as Keryat Ye'arim and now it is Jerusalem , named after King David conquered and ruled the city.
The perspective and infrastructure view of the whole tower that made of pre-cast steel during the Roman period or the latest generation developed to show how it looks like before the history was made.
This is the signage in front of the tower just beside the busiest old city of Jerusalem going down to the Wishing Wall.
Waited for thirty minutes to open the gate, we arrived earlier that the scheduled time of opening will be ten in the morning. We never knew that their time schedule, we just saw on the board written when we are already there.
I'm outside the tower, see the flags above? and how high the walls?that is the highest point I've ever walked and climb the stairs to have full sight seeing around Jerusalem.Not straightly up there, we sit down few minutes in the audio room then went to room by room where images was displayed.
This is in one room, I need to eat some more butter to add few centimeters to touch that sign above.
This is the image of the Temple Mount courts during the Herrodian period.If you not seen the place maybe your first thought was just around the corner basing all the stories. To tell you frankly in one whole day is not enough knowing what it really means and their origins. Naduduling na ako, nuh!
See how it looks before and now is so different. I'm so confused reading all the history where it begins. If I started reading at the age of seven years old maybe this time I can tell completely what this site is all about.
Here is the inside parts of the tower where all their activities held.Did you see around the high walls and rooms of no windows at all. So dark inside and the pathways are narrow.I can imagine now like the stadium but built before as wall with an open space in mid area.
This is after we got inside the gate hurrying who first sit down the concrete bench, We all looks like happy but so tired of waiting outside with this summer heat that almost burn my eye brows.

At last I am the first one to reach the exit gate. Should go by groups or else you will get lost like one of our companion. She waited in the middle but most of us waited downstairs.It has different locations of mini exits and stairs. When the guards saw us directing the main exit they have to checked the whole area because during the entry they count us and they found one of our companion left in the middle of the tower.We just stayed for two hours or less maybe which I cannot finish reading and checking it for the whole day , I think. So ..tired!
