089 Dr. Efklides's Residence

3 Rachel Imenu St., Greek Colony

Architect: Spyro Houri, early 20th century

A visit at this residence offers a glimpse of how Greek Orthodox families lived in Jerusalem at the beginning of the 20th century.  It used to be the home of Dr. Photias Efklides, a pillar of the local Greek Orthodox community and the first director of the municipal hospital built under Ottoman rule at the end of the 19th century. The house has in the meantime been restored as a museum that exhibits furniture, artifacts, and photographs belonging to the doctor and his family. Guided tours for groups of 25 will start every 30 minutes.
