The Jerusalem Chords Bridge is the New Light from Zion

At the western entrance to the city of Jerusalem sits the Jerusalem Chords Bridge, designed by famed Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava. It sits at a major junction and for the past decade or so has allowed the light rail to pass overhead. Said to look like David's Harp (though I think it looks more like a boat), it has become a noted architectural landmark on the city's skyline - and something, as a tour guide of Israel, I consistently get asked about at the various city's viewpoints. Now, however, it has developed an artistic role - in addition to its formal and functional ones.


14,400 new LED light bulbs have been strung along the bridge's wires which allow it to not only light up the night in various colors, but to even spell out messages. You can check it out here: https://www.timesofisrael.com/renewed-jerusalem-chords-bridge-lights-up-to-tune-of-1-million/
