We will walk through the foundations of King David's palace, observe the ruins of the homes and offices of the officials who served the Judean Kings. We will explore a 3800-year-old tunnel that was a passageway to Jerusalem's water supply, the Gichon spring, the very site where King Solomon, the son of King David, was anointed. We will walk through the water in the darkened Hezekiah tunnels with flashlights leading our way and emerge at the Second Temple era Shiloan pool, where pilgrims bringing sacrifices to the Temple would congregate and immerse before alighting to the Temple Mount. This is the site where Jesus miraculously restored a blind man's sight. We will connect to the path of the pilgrims via a shuttle, and walk through the drainage tunnel along the foundations of the Western Wall. We emerge through the tunnel at the ancient Herodian Street including the ruins of shops, the money changers, and pigeon vendors, as well as the entrance to the Holy Temple.
