Lod is one of the oldest cities in Israel, but it was of modest importance until after the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 C.E. It then became a culturally flourishing community and for nearly three hundred years it was a center of Jewish learning.
During the Byzantine period, Lod acquired religious importance to the Christian world. The Jewish community which had prospered for hundreds of years was destroyed by the Crusaders who conquered Lod in the 11 th century. In the wake of the Mameluke invasion it became a desolate town. Lod's importance as a crossroad since ancient times, was renewed when the railroad was built in Israel. It became a central crossroad in the country and eventually, nearby, Israel's International Airport was built.

**Airport building depicted is of Terminal 1.
