Two weeks ago, our group walked through the water tunnels built by King Hezekiah. To learn more, read II Kings 20. Really amazing! In and around Jerusalem, there are a lot of shrines that are full of candles, incense, rocks to kiss, etc., etc. There are very few places that people people can say for certain, that this place actually existed at this time - and here it is - unpolluted by tourism or the tacky side of religious decoration. The tunnel is amazing. You'll need your torch/flashlight, and you need to wear shoes that can get wet. Most of the time, the water was at knee level or below - a few times it reached to mid-thigh. It's totally pitch dark. Best to go with a group - and not be the person in front! Avoid the screaming school groups - just hold back at the tunnel entrance if needed to give them a head start. The echoes of screaming gets a bit annoying after awhile. Don't miss it. Located south of the old city, in the City of David part of town.
