You can also buy a ticket for The White Tower which is a 5 minute drive from The Pool of Arches. The White Tower rises to a height of 30 meters. Its erection was ordered by the Mamluk sultan Muhammad Ibn Khalhoun, to be completed in 1318. Apparently, it served as a watch tower, since even today, its top offers a panoramic view of the entire area, from the Mediterranean coast in the west (including Tel Aviv) to the foot of the Judean Mountains and Samaria in the east.
There are researchers who claim that the tower was possibly built as a minaret, an architectural structure serving the muezzin when he calls the Moslem faithful to prayer five times a day.
You don’t need to make reservations. The most I have had to wait to enter The Pool of Arches has been 30 minutes.
