Two sibling alleys located next to filthy King George street. The adjacent alleys were built in the 1920s by a wealthy man for his wife. At the entrance there are two obelisks and a lion statue. According to the legends, the man wanted to name one of them under his name and the other one under his wife’s, but Mayor Dizengoff got angry and decided to name them Plonit and Almonit (both meaning John Doe).
The two alleys are built differently and beautifully, the lion is very impressive and there’s some decent graffiti paintings. These are iconic alleys in the city’s history, and the lion is even on the album cover of one of Israel’s most celebrated singers.
