Western Wall Tunnels

 

In the nineteenth century, the most distinguished Jerusalem scholars were trying to determine the precise measurements of the Western Wall and describe the methods used in its construction. In 1867-1870, British researchers uncovered the northern extension of the Western Wall Prayer Plaza. Immediately after the Six Day War, the Ministry of Religious Affairs began the project of exposing the entire length of the Western Wall.  The excavations required close supervision by experts in the fields of structural engineering, securing subterranean tunnels, archeology, and of course, Jewish Law.   After almost twenty years, and despite enormous difficulties, the Western Wall Tunnels were excavated. This lengthy project unearthed many archeological finds which can only be described as remarkable.  These finds revealed new and unknown details about the history and the geography of the Temple Mount site.  When the Western Wall Heritage Foundation was established, it was given the responsibility of continuing the excavations, which revealed ancient Jerusalem in all its glory, and bringing them to the public’s attention by opening the tunnels to visitors.

All of these amazing portholes to the past can be seen at the Western Wall Tunnels, which is why visiting them is so thrilling.  A visit to the Tunnels is not just an awe-inspiring journey through time, but also a fascinating lesson in Jewish history and in the archeology and topography of Jerusalem.
