For hundreds of years, in both Old and New Testament times, Jewish people would make their way to Jerusalem for numerous festivals. Until the temple was destroyed in 70 AD, the average Jewish person would travel to Jerusalem at least three times per year. An ancient road near Beit Horon may have been one of the 'pilgrim roads' they traveled. The road is about 10 miles northwest of Jerusalem and is comprised of steps cut right out of the rock, measuring 5.5 feet in width. A Roman imperial road is also nearby; both roads lead to Jerusalem.
