About this title


Beginning in 1967 a tunnel was excavated along the entire length of the Western Wall of the Temple Mount, passing beneath the buildings of the Muslim Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. The initiative for this excavation was taken by the Israel Ministry of Religious Affairs, which sought to become familiar with the Western Wall and the reasons for it having become a focus for Jewish prayer. Remains of several periods of construction have been found in the tunnel. At the northern end a massive pre-Herodian water channel was discovered. The monumental Herodian period construction characterized by huge ashlars was found the entire length of the tunnel. It became clear that Herod did not complete the construction project at the northern end of the Western Wall. One of the four western gates of the Temple Mount, known today as Warren's Gate after its discoverer, is now visible to visitors.
