A giant model of Jerusalem featuring the Temple Mount, the Tower of David, the Knesset, the new Jerusalem Light Rail and the soon-to-be-completed pyramid skyscraper, will be placed in Times Square in New York as part of the Gulliver’s Gate “mini-world” project.

The 100-square-meter model was designed and constructed by Israeli company Mathov Designs. The model will be shipped to New York in three weeks in three shipping containers, where it will be rebuilt by the company.

“The project was initiated by a group of people who rented two huge floors in a building in Times Square, where they plan to create a permanent tourist attraction—a miniature world, ” said Gadi Ma-Tov, the founder of Mathov Designs.

“The idea is to show old and new Jerusalem. We built models of the pyramid building on Eden Street which is still under construction and the old train station. It’s not an exact model of the city, ” he said.
