View north: You can see the Israelite citadel on top of the tel (left center) and the roof over the Canaanite palace (right center). In the middle of the photo to the right of the palace and above it you can make out the snow-capped Mount Hermon below the clouds.
View northwest, looking across the Israelite citadel (center) toward Upper Galilee.
View north, looking across the Canaanite palace (left) with the Hula Valley in the background.
The video pans across Upper Galilee from the northwest to the northeast. Hazor’s commanding view of the Hula Valley comes into view at the end of the video.
The plaques near the site entrance contain overview information about Hazor. For example, King Solomon’s Hazor (10th century BC) included only the upper part of the city (pictured above and below). The city expanded to the north in the 9th century during King Ahab’s reign.
View west: The upper mound of Tel Hazor represents only one-fourth of the ancient site. In this upper tel photo you can see the roof over the palace of the Canaanite kings (center right).
