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

It looks like this was the place where many of the stones were cut that made up the original temple. It is huge. We were in it in November of 2019 and they were still opening up new pathways. You can see where a craftsman started to cut on one of the pillars. The foreman probably stopped him as that pillar held up tons of rock overhead. At the very back is a spring called Zedekiah's tears. Nice cool place to visit on hot days, Entrance fee was minimal.
