About the Bonaparte Hill in Ramat GanTel Napoleon in Hebrew, Napoleon Hill in English, or Tel Jarissa in Arabic, is an archaeological site near the intersection of the Yarkon River and Nahal Ayalon. It was named after the army of the French general Napoleon Bonaparte, who is said to have camped here with his army when he conquered parts of the Land of Israel in 1799. Legend, by the way, says that Napoleon's soldiers built the hill within one night to put their cannons on the top. But this is only a legend, because findings clearly show that the hill existed thousands of years earlier.
There is a spectacular panoramic view of the surroundings, all the urban directions and what follows. The hill is about 40,000 square meters in size and is shaped like a saddle. The height of Tel Napoleon is 38 meters above sea level. You can see it and climb to the top if you walk a few meters from the Seven Mills in Yarkon Park.
Tel Napoleon is above all an archaeological dig in the city of Ramat Gan, south of the Yarkon River and east of Nahal Ayalon. Although there is almost nothing to see in terms of archaeological findings, there are remains of a cistern from a Canaanite water system. Although Tel Napoleon bears the name after Napoleon Bonaparte, the history of the mound is much older than that. Remains from the 17th centuries CE, remains from the Canaanite period, which is the Late Bronze Age, and even the Philistine features that may indicate a Philistine settlement there were discovered. There may have been an ancient and significant metal industry on the hill.
