Herodian Tunnels

A tour through newly excavated Herodian tunnels (1st Century AD) not yet opened to the public. The tunnel runs from the Silwan (Shiloam) Pool up towards the Temple Mount (Haram). Some scholars think it may extend all the way under the Temple Mount. It may have been used as a water channel, or may perhaps have been for priests who were defiled on the Temple Mount and had to leave by underground tunnels.
