City of David Foundation

The City of David Foundation offers educational programs and interactive tours of underground archaeological excavations that take Christians to where it all began—ancient Jerusalem.

City of David tours begin with a breathtaking observation point overlooking biblical Jerusalem which sends visitors 3,800 years back in time to the days of Abraham, when the first foundations of the city were laid. The site tours include archaeological excavations and thrilling biblical finds that span thousands of years of history, including the First and Second Temples, the Gihon Spring, and King Hezekiah’s 2,700-year-old water tunnel.

When you support Hargrave Ministries, you are unveiling and preserving the rich history of the ancient city of Jerusalem.

Pilgrimage Road Engineering Award

Competing with over 170 different projects from around the world, the engineering innovation that makes the excavation of the Pilgrimage Road possible, won first place in the acclaimed International Tunneling and Underground Space competition.

Referring to the unique and unprecedented success of the Pilgrimage Road Excavation in combining a feat of engineering within an active archeological site, the award committee stated “this is a unique project that uses creativity and groundbreaking means in the field of engineering and archeology.”

Grushko Engineering, who accepted the award, credits the combined skill, expertise and ingenuity of the City of David, the Israel Antiquities Authority, the National Parks Authority and their engineers for the achievement. “I think this project should be international…” stated Gilad Freiman of Grushko Engineers. “What we are revealing here is everyone’s history.”
