Having been to Israel a number of times; we were looking for something new to explore. This definitely surprised us. The size and location of the cave is what really captivated us. We also enjoyed being able to take our time and explore without the crowds and it was a pleasant escape from the heat. I will say, that if you decide to venture in, be sure to have on good walking shoes.

Okay but not a priority to see

Large deep man made caves possibly used to build the second temple. If you like caves it is pretty much just seeing a giant hole and some tunnels. It is a lot bigger than I expected though and took maybe 20 to 30 to walk through. Somewhat interesting but not a priority to see....

Large deep man made caves possibly used to build the second temple. If you like caves it is pretty much just seeing a giant hole and some tunnels. It is a lot bigger than I expected though and took maybe 20 to 30 to walk through. Somewhat interesting but not a priority to see. Private events can rent the space so hours can change and close. Not sure if I would pay for this site though if not included in the "nine attractions for 100 NIS" deal for many major sites that you can buy, just google for more info.

There is little to see and the attraction is its enormity. But tonight was different because, as part of the Festival of Lights, a very...

The entrance to this quarry is about, 100m east of Damascus Gate. This is an enormous cave (quarry) that stretches far under the Moslem quarter of the Old City. There is little to see and the attraction is its enormity. But tonight was different because, as part of the Festival of Lights, a very talented pianist played a grand piano deep in the cave.

Large cave/ quarry, limited interest

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...

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.
