This square is a common site for various political demonstrations and rallies, and it is here where ex PM Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated in 1995. An upside-down pyramid in the middle of the square commemorates the Holocaust.
Despite its sad story many citizens come here to rest every day. Go to a green oasis in the southern part of the square – it is great for enjoying warm sun in winter and hiding in shadows in summer. Just lay back in a lounge chair near a pond with blossoming lilies and pretend to be a local resident.
