The Kotel Tunnel Tour

Highlights
  • Walk under the Old City of Jerusalem
  • Explore archaeology and antiquities from 20 BCE
  • Visit the closest point possible to the "Holy of the Holies"
Description
After the Six-Day War, the Ministry of Religious Affairs began the rigorous process of uncovering the entire length of the Western Wall

The Western Wall Tunnels were finally excavated almost twenty years later. In spite of the numerous obstacles this project initially proposed, archaeologists were able to uncover 2,000 years of Jerusalem’s rich history. 

These discoveries included ancient cisterns, aqueducts from the Hasmonean period, and remains of the Herodian road which ran parallel to the Temple Mount.

The Western Wall Tunnel tour will take you underground in order to visit a large portion of the Western Wall inaccessible otherwise. 

You will see stones, models and actual structures which provide clues as to how the Second Temple was constructed. In addition, these artifacts help explain the history of this area through the eyes of all the great empires that once ruled Jerusalem.
