The meticulously planned streets, plazas, and dwellings of the lower part of this important biblical city were surrounded by a powerful 1,200-meter city wall. It even had a reservoir into which rainwater was channeled. A highlight of the visit to Tel Arad is the Israelite temple in the upper city, which scholars say was a miniature version of Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. The lower city was inhabited in the Early Bronze Age and the upper city was first settled in the Israelite period (1200 BCE).
