Not amazing as most of the other National Parks but still interesting
Jan 2020
Not amazing as most of the other National Parks in Israel, like Metsada, Avdat, Beith Shean and many others.
First, it is much much smaller.
But then it still is very interesting as it is rather different for its historical significance as well as the architecture, the colors of the stones and the structure of the remaining.
When you're on your way to the Northern Nature Reserves after the heavy January rains , or the other National Parks, like Nimrod Fortress (much bigger and impressive) or Gamla, you can stop there for half an hour and learn a little more about Israel History.
And if you have the Matmon Card which gives you a free entry, tehn all the better, isn't it?

A work in progress
Feb 2020
The good news is that it is wheel chair friendly. The bad news is that it is not as interesting as some of the other Archaeological sites. It is extremely cold and windy on the tell and maybe 4 areas that pique the interest one of which is the unusual water system ( which can be seen from a platform above it if you don’t feel up to walking down steep stairs ) There is a volunteer guide - Joe who is a spry 83 year old passionate about archeology and enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge. We were delighted to have him show us around.

Morning visiting Tel Hazor
Dec 2019
Tel Hazor is located in the Hula Valley, at the foot of the Galilee mountains. It is situated along the ancient road and linked the land of Israel thru Lebanon's Beka'a Valley to Babylon. Natural conditions led it to become the greatest city in the land of Israel of the Canaanite period.
Hazor, consists of an upper city and a lower city. At one time, the city's population was about 15,000.
An Irish scholar first identified biblical Hazor in 1875.
There is a walking path, picnic tables, a lookout, toilets and parking there. Very interesting to visit.

Fascinating ruins
Dec 2019
The ruins of Tel Hazor were very interesting. To see dwellings with dining areas and ritual baths brought the history of the Bible to life. It is amazing to see how people lived over 2000 years ago.

An historic tel in the midday sun
Sep 2019
No shade, midday and a searing sun. The site was 1500 BC roughly with some great views. There was a deep stairway down to their water source - a massive hole in the ground. When we got to the bottom the excavation was not finished and their were buckets for you to take soil back up the stairs - give me a break :).
Tel Hazor was the capital of the Canaanite kingdom before the arrival of the Israelites, and continued to be an important city during Biblical time. 21 layers of settlement from the 3rd millennium to 732 BC have been uncovered. The water system was accessible by a 40m shaft with a spiral staircase. Yigael Yadin (of Masada dig) dug here. Tel Hazor is the largest archaeological site in Northern Israel, featuring an upper tell of 30 acres and a lower city of more than 175 acres. It is well worth a visit.

An amazing archeological site and so worth to visit
Jul 2019 • Couples
Driving up North in the Galilee, we wanted to revisit Tel Hazor, as we had visited it many years ago, it was a good opportunity to revisit it, and see what is new, and there are new things.
It is a UNESCO site, and now it is not visited as it used in the past, as the highway is a bit to the west of the site, so people maybe think it is not worth.
The site manager Ido, was very nice, and also he suggested us to take a volunteer to guide us in the site and it was a very good suggestion and we enjoyed it very much, really they have advanced in many sites of this enormous site, but still many years to uncover all, we loved it, and we thank Ido and the volunteer, Menachem for the time and pleasant guiding. We would suggest to add something for the handicapped to visit the Caananite Palace....they also deserve to visit that part.
I believe if you are driving or have a guide with you...take the visit, Tel Hazor was one of the few important towns in this part of the world, mentioned in the scripts.

Extremely well done and worth a visit!

Another of many Biblical sites in Israel. This is an active dig area that confirms Abraham and Solomon were likely here. The archeologists are digging up new stuff all the time.

The old Canaanite arches are well preserved and different than others.

Go on up to Dan as well.

Solomon's Gate and other ruins
Jun 2018 • Friends
Fascinating ruins of an ancient community on a hillside. Ruins gave a good indication of the life lived here. Lots of restoration going on. The entrance gates are a feature
