Closed as of November 2022. We were at the entrance and there were still signs on the gate that it is still under construction. I have been in there several times before in previous years and it is a great historical location to visit. Ark of the covenant was taken up to the Garden Tomb grounds via a hidden tunnel in Zedekiah's Cave.

"Currently Closed for Construction"
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on July 19, 2022

Currently the caves are closed for construction so it is not open the public as of 7/19/22. It looks like a cool spot right outside of the Damascus Gate but it is not accessible right now.

"Interesting Quarry Cave"
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on September 7, 2021

Interesting cave or former quarry of stone for the rest of the Old City in Herodian times, due to Covid 19, sometimes it maybe closed and they are also doing some restorations, it is a huge site, and in the past they did concerts there
