Tower of David
The Tower of David is located at the entrance of Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City. The early Byzantine Christians believed that the palace of King David was located here; this reminiscence still preserved in the minaret.
Herod the Great built his palace here. Of his palace remains only a tower dedicated to his brother Phasael remains. The other two towers in honor of his best friend Hippicus and his wife Mariamme were destroyed.
