Hezekiah’s Tunnel in the City of David

Hezekiah’s tunnel is also known as Siloam Tunnel located in the City of David National Park right outside of the Dung Gate of the Old City.  It is an amazing place to visit and you will never forget wading through water through 1,750 feet of pure excitement.  As you walk through, you will reflect on the Bible story of King Hezekiah who had his people dig this tunnel from opposite ends and they met in the middle.  That alone is a miracle of itself.  He wanted to save the water supply for the people to survive and brought forth this wonderful plan of protected the water supply during the assault of the Assyrians.

It is best to purchase those aqua shoes or wear old tennis shoe that you do not care if you throw away after the walk.  You can purchase the aqua shoes in a tourist store down by the Dead Sea.  I must admit there were times that the tunnel got quite narrow but that made it even more exciting!

Enjoy,
