Jerusalem of the early Roman period (the late Second Temple period), was the Temple City. The Jewish faith permitted the existence of a single Temple, which developed the pilgrimage of the people to their single place of worship. Pilgrimage became a phenomenon which characterized the city. This study aims in summarizing the currently available archaeological remains which characterize the peculiar nature of the Jewish temple-city. Most of these features clearly relate to the Jewish religious rules (halakha).
