(Biblical Archaeology Review) The Israeli association The Heart of the Nation, along with various scholars and the Israeli Minister of Construction and Housing, released a virtual tour of the Temple Mount this week, in conjunction with the fast day of Tisha B’av. Tisha B’av, which fell on Monday, July 15 – Tuesday July 16 this year, is a commemoration of the Babylonian destruction of Solomon’s Temple in the sixth century B.C.E. and the Roman destruction of the Second Temple in 70 C.E.

The Hebrew-language virtual tour features panoramic 360-degree views of various sites on the Temple Mount.
