Well I honsetly don't know, but come to think of it, it looks alot bigger than it is. It's probably only 6 metres high..

Tell me something ... Aviv means flowers in Hebrew? Ramat means what? and Tel Aviv means what in Hebrew? It sound like nice names!

Hah, it's nice that you're interested. Tel means an artificial hill while Aviv is referred to the Spring season. So Tel Aviv = 'Hill of Spring'. Rama is some sort of a raised surface, while ramat means 'the surface of ..'. Gan is a garden, and so Ramat Gan would be 'Raised garden surface' or something like that :D

This is not just a little tower, but the old Tel-Kudadi lighthouse. You can read about it here, under "Tel-Aviv". http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/lighthouse/isr.htm
