Tunnel under Herod's Temple

 

Entering a tunnel at the prayer plaza, one turns northwards into a medieval complex of subterranean vaulted spaces and a long corridor with rooms on either side. Incorporated into this complex is a Roman and medieval structure of vaults, built of large dressed limestone.The vaulted complex ends at Wilson's Arch, named after the explorer who discovered it in the middle of the 19th century.
