Giv`at Yesha`yahu Things to Do: 3 reviews and 15 photos
Near the entrance to Givat Yesha'ayahu there are the regional offices of the KKL (or JNF), and when you enter the main gate of the compound you are in for a surprise: There is an archeological park, a carefully laid out display representing core findings in archeological sites in the region.
The items on display are from the Second Temple (Hellenistic & Roman) period and from the Byzantine period. There is a sarcophagus, an ossuary, tombstones from graves of the rich (imported marble) and the poor (local limestone), oil presses, and more.
Entrance is free.
It's an interesting stop in every road trip in this area.
Directions: On Route 38, just north of Givat Yesha'ayahu
