Western Wall Tunnel - Israel Tours

Known for its archaeological and historical value and revered as the final remaining remnant of the Second Temple and Judaism’s most sacred site

Though the Western Wall is a popular site for Jewish travel, the Western Wall tunnel is another appealing stop for its archaeological and historical value. The Western Wall is revered as the final remaining remnant of the Second Temple and Judaism’s most sacred site. However, King Solomon’s invitation to everyone (1King 8:41-42) to come to the Western Wall in prayer has attracted visitors from all over the world regardless of their culture. Visitors are amazed to learn that most of the 1700ft length of the Western Wall lies beneath the Old City of today. The tunnels were created by many arched side-by-side supporting staircases that travel from the city all the way to the Temple Mount. There was a shallow valley in ancient times called the Tyropaean, which ran along the side of the Temple Mount to the west, which separated the Herodian quarter from the Temple, which has been filled as a result of the constant demolition and rebuilding. The Western Wall Tunnel still goes directly below the Muslim quarter. The Western Wall Tunnel’s huge support arches have held up the streets of Jerusalem over the last millennia, and visitors on Jewish tours of Israel find it an incredibly special experience to reach out and touch them as they pass through the Western Wall Tunnel; as if they’re able to touch an important piece of history.
