Close to Damascus Gate (about 100 feet to the east along the Old City wall), the cave was apparently a quarry during the Roman era. Few obvious signs of antiquity. It's interesting that water drips into the cave even during the dry season. The site is well lit and goes deep underground. Wear good shoes. Not suitable for handicapped. Good on a hot day or if you are extraordinarily interested in caves or quarries or this is your 5th visit and you need to kill some time.

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.

Underground cave/quarry
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on October 22, 2016

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
