This is a beautiful and poignant memorial to the founding fathers of this miraculous and beautiful little country. Situated on Rothschild, close to the Independence Hall, where Ben Gurion declared the State of Israel 70 years ago. Interesting and a must see.

In truth I only stumbled across this while walking along Rothschild Boulevard towards Independence Hall. It seemed so out of place that I felt compelled to find out what this was. Turns out the fountain and monument is to commemorate the first group of people...More

It's a bit Nondescript with Hebrew words on one side and an engraving on the other side. However one thing I am sure I think they are convinced that israel's independence is on the hard work of the founders and cannot be taken for granted.

If you are on Rothschild Boulevard, than that is a good place to stop and take a break. Isn t a great fountain, but is on a traffic route for tourists.

Nothing truly special, but a shallow fountain with a small memorial marker. It is located centrally and as such you might stumble over it, but not worth the visit.

Dedicated to the founders of Tel Aviv from 1909 to 1949. The names are listed on one side and there is a relief carving on the other depicting the early days. The fountain is cooling and lovely.

The monument is on Rothschild blvd so you can visit while there. It's open to the public 24/7 and has many cafes \ restaurants in the area.
