Western Wall tunnels- The Great Stone Route

A journey through time to the depths of the history of the Jerusalem

Western Wall tunnels- The Great Stone Route

The Western Wall of the Temple Mount (also known as the “Jerusalem Wall”) is one of the most magnificent and significant remnants in Jerusalem from the days of the Second Temple, destroyed approximately 2,000 years ago.
The Western Wall stretches along almost half a kilometer, but today, the part visible to all at the Western Wall Plaza is a mere 70 meters of it. The tour of the Western Wall Tunnels allows visitors to reach the segments of the Wall hidden from view, and to touch the original and special western wall stones that tell the story of the Jewish nation. Visitors to the Western Wall Tunnels walk through ancient and fascinating subterranean spaces with exquisite archeological findings, such as large stone arches, water pits, an ancient water aqueduct that ends at the Strouthion Pool, and more.
The tour of the Tunnels includes innovative virtual models. It is considered an international attraction and is one of the must-see sites in the city of Jerusalem.

The number of visitors on each tour of the Western Wall tunnels are up to 35 participants in a guided group. The minimum number of visitors for an independent group is 18 people. The tours will take place for a fee and by prior arrangement only.
