Kishle Excavations

The “Kishle” is the local nickname for the Ottoman era police station of the old city of Jeruslaem. It was erected in 1834 and was used both by the Ottomans and the British.

In recent years excavations of the sites uncovered remains from various earlier periods, including significant remains of Herod’s palace, and Iron age finds.
