Megiddo was destroyed and rebuilt at least 26 times. It overlooks the beautiful and fertile Jezreel Valley, also known as Har-megeddon (Armegeddon). Its long history and strategic location can lead to a lot of reasonable speculation such as Abram (Abraham) may have stopped here. A...More

Not much to see here. What there is is very interesting. Seems like a lot more excavation is required. If you have time you should stop and check it out.

If you are interested in OT history this is a must. Good views over Jezreel. Sight of Canaanite altar. Exit via underground water passage.

Megiddo, Armageddon, is a biblical site and an historic landmark. The beginning of the end happens here. For tourists, the view is beautiful and the history is fascinating. It is a little athletic but worth it.

The history of Megiddo goes back to at least the 15th Century BC. This area was the crossroads between Egypt and Mesopotamia. Megiddo is the location in Revelations where the battle of armageddon will take place. There is much to see and ponder here.

I very much enjoyed our tour through this park. Our guide was excellent. Learning about how a "Tel" is formed was really interesting. Another example of the amazing land that Israel is.

Megiddo is easily accessable from both Tel Aviv and Haifa. There is no problem whatsoever to visit it alone, if you go to the museam first, and get a right impression what you are going to sea further. This done, you may... More
