Time Out says

The Tower of David is located at the Jaffa Gate, within an ancient and restored fortress.

Jerusalem's Citadels, known locally as the "Tower of David," is a magnificently restored archaeological structure that bears witness to thousands of years of history. Inside the ancient guard rooms is a museum that houses permanent exhibitions telling the story of Jerusalem through specialized cultural events, activities, tours and temporary exhibitions. From the top of King Herod's tower, there are breathtaking 360 degree views of the city, both new and old. Don't forget to check out what new app or digital development they have to better experience the stories of the city. Also, don't miss the Night Spectacular: an outdoor sound and light show projected onto its stone walls telling the rich story of Jerusalem.
