Amazing walk in history
Aug 2021
It is an amazing part of a visit to the Old City of Jerusalem, and see how the Temple mount was built, how the stones were set on top of Mount Moriah, an architectural and engineering feat, that is incredible.
It is worth visiting, if you get to book your time, just groups of 20 people enter each 10 minutes, and do reserve it ahead of time or via your tour operator.

The exit is on the first station of the Via Crucis, so it is a good place to continue touring the Old City

Poor experience
Jun 2021 • Couples
Very disappointing. My wife visited many years ago and told me how wonderful it was as you walked through the low narrow tunnels as they would have been for centuries.
Now they are large vaulted rooms with very little information in each room and no where near the experience we have had in other ancient sites.
We got a guide that only spoke Hebrew.
Accepting that most of the tour was from one long lecture to another where she described the history and different areas. The group was too large which meant that half the people couldn’t see what she was describing.
The guy at reception initially said he couldn’t speak English and later spoke perfectly.

often, the city keep digging and finding more things below.
it's amazing to walk thru there and see how it was long, long time ago.
Get into it within a few feet of the Western wall and exit is thru a street market on the Arab quarter.
Do not know if a handicap person can do it, where i walk thru can't.

One of my 'must visit' sites in Jerusalem. Archaeology, history and the major points of Jewish history, rolled into one.

Tunnel to History
Feb 2020
I didn't know there was a tunnel that went the entire length Western Wall of the Old Jerusalem. The Holy Land has to be an archeologist dream, they still keep finding things even in the Old City. This apparently was discovered during laying down of water pipes in 1967. Some if it are parts of the roads that in Jesus's day would have walked. Within the tunnels I saw a place for synagogal worship and there is even a sections for men and women to pray at the Western Wall underground. Who knew? The first part of the tour had visuals to help us see what the temple mount looked like at various periods in time and a visual of where we were under the tunnel compared to topside. We saw stones that had King Herrod's mark, which helped them determine the age. (Large stones) Smaller stone structures indicated a later time period. There was also a small section of some marble left by workers who "when on break" but never came back to continue working. The archeologist left it as is. It was a fascinating tour.

Walking beneath the Western wall in the tunnels is very interesting. At that level you are walking under Jerusalem at the level of the city from Jesus Christ’s time. Some very narrow passages and a few wet spots.
