We love bringing you breathtaking sites and attractions from Israel – both as suggestions for future travels and to bring a little bit of the Holy Land to you at home! Today, our friends at ISRAEL21c show us 10 of Israel’s must-see fountains, including Eilat’s Musical Fountain (shown in the video above) and the Lions Fountain in Jerusalem:
The Lions Fountain in Bloomfield Park in Jerusalem is a city landmark. It was designed by German artist Gernot Rampf and was given to the capital as a gift from West Germany in 1989, making it Jerusalem’s first fountain.
The municipal emblem features the “Lion of Judah,” and Rampf wanted to convey the historical and cultural aspects of the city in his design. Other symbols in the structure include a tree at the fountain’s center with three branches representing the three major religions of Jerusalem; seven water flows symbolizing one of the most significant numbers in the Bible; and sculptures of doves, mice and other lions illustrate coexistence and the desire for peace.
