Herodian Quarter

The Wohl Museum of Archeology is a six-house compound, situated in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City on the slope facing the Temple Mount. The archeological remains are at the basement level of the ancient two level buildings and the exhibit focuses on three houses: the Western House, the Middle Complex and the Palatial Mansion. These were apparently the homes of aristocratic Jewish families who lived there during the Herodian period, probably Temple priests. They were designed in the Hellenistic/Roman style popular at the time. The findings revealed during the excavations, bear witness to the residents’ wealth and high standard of living. The site features some of the oldest mosaics ever found in Jerusalem, as well as rare furnishings from the Second Temple period.
