An Expensive Cave Journey but Very Good

Visited this attraction on the way to the Garden Tomb. The caves extend a long way under the ground and are very interesting. Plenty of great photo opportunities.

Located under the Muslim Quarter, accessed from outside of the Old City near Damascus gate. A downward sloped path. Wear sturdy shoes. It can be slippery in spots. Respite from the sun. It was fun to explore. Detailed English brochure was provided at the ticket booth. Cost: 16NIS ($4.15 USD)

A must see

I was just amazed at this place. It made my mind work overtime just to figure out how did King Solomon and his workers cut and removed the stone from this cave to built the 1st Temple. A must see for everyone

Interesting

Wear good runners, not for the elderly. Very rugged and once you reach the end, you must come back the same way. Quite the caves and very interesting history to it. But f you have mobility problems, do not risk it.
