Talpiot Talpiyot (lit. turrets, or magnificently built�), is a neighborhood in southeast Jerusalem, Israel, established in 1922 by Zionist pioneers.
Talpiot neighborhood was evacuated following the 1929 Hebron massacre. In the wake of the Israeli War of Independence, Talpiot became a frontier neighborhood, surrounded by Jordanian-controlled East Jerusalem, but Israelis continued to live there. The neighborhood expanded significantly after the 1967 Six-Day War, with new residential districts going up on the lands that once separated Israel and Jordan, including territory formerly controlled by the UN.
A large industrial zone is located on the outskirts of residential Talpiot. For many years, an old British army camp known as Mahane Allenby was a prominent feature of Talpiot. In the last decade, the camp was razed and luxury towers were built on the spot.
Talpiot today consists of several parts. "Old Talpiot" is the historic and well-established residential neighborhood founded in 1922. North Talpiot -- also known as Arnona -- is a newer neighborhood, built since 1967, offering panoramic views of Jerusalem Old City.
