A guided tour of the Kishle. Unfold the key to the secrets and power of the city, hidden deep underground, through the revelation of historic events which shaped Jerusalem’s character. The Kishle, a building used in the past as a police station and a prison, is located south of the Tower of David, against the wall of the Old City. During the British Mandate, the Kishle was used to detain prisoners including members of the Jewish underground organizations. In 1999, the Israel Antiquities Authority carried out an extensive archeological excavation in Kishla, which revealed the city's secrets all the way from the days of the First Temple and up to present day.
