Made Possible By Estanne And Martin Fawer

imageThe Archaeological Garden, located in the beautiful outdoor gardens surrounding the President’s house in the heart of Jerusalem, focuses on the Jewish heritage of Ancient Israel. The exhibition displays architectural remnants representing 2,000 years of history from the First Temple to the Byzantine period (10th century BCE – 7th century CE). The capitals, lintels, decorated friezes, mosaics and dedicatory inscriptions are from Jerusalem, Caesarea, Tiberias, as well as from sites in the Golan Heights, the Galilee, the Judean Shephela and Samaria. They reflect the monumental construction of the First and Second Temple periods, as well as daily life, religious practices and art of the Second Temple and Byzantine periods.
