Wilson's Arch

At the time of the Second Temple, a huge bridge connected the upper city of Jerusalem to the Temple Mount.

Public Room

Here, close to Wilson's Arch, is the "Hall of the Hasmoneans."

Huge Stone

Meet the largest building stone ever used in world history.

Holy of Holies

This is the closest accessible point to where the Holy Ark stood.

Kotel Tunnel

We enter a very long, straight, narrow passage known eponymously as "The Tunnel."

Ancient Cistern

We now explore three waterways that supplied water to the Temple.

Herodian Street

Originally a promenade that ran the full length of the Western Wall.

Struthion Pool

At the end of the Hasmonean aqueduct is a large pool called the Struthion Pool.

Exit and Epilogue

As we near the exit, we can't help but marvel at the modern miracle of the Jewish people's return to their land.
