18- Pool of Siloam
The Pool of Siloam sits to the south of the City of David on the west side of the eastern hill. It received water
from Hezekiah’s Tunnel, which came originally from the Gihon Springs.

 

 

 

 

 

Notice the relationship of the stepped stone street to
the Pool of Siloam and Hezekiah’s Tunnel.


This is a view of one side of the Pool of Siloam. The steps and platforms would allow people to walk down to the water level, which would change depending on
the season and the amount of rainfall. The pool is not yet excavated to the left of this photo. Notice the corner of the pool in the bottom right corner of this photo.

One of the four corners of the Pool of Siloam. The steps of the Pool of Siloam. The corner of the pool can be seen in the background. This view shows the size of this important pool from the days of the New Testament, where Jesus sent a blind man to wash the mud from his eyes in John 9.

Water from Hezekiah’s Tunnel still flows through a covered channel near the Pool of Siloam, and some of the original covering stones are still in place. Notice the stone
pavement in the bottom left corner and the steps in the top left. This pool was discovered in 2004 during the preliminary stages of a public works project in the area.

The stones of the covered channel that brings water from Hezekiah’s Tunnel into the area.

 


This is the water channel. The Pool of Siloam is to the right in this photo. The circular holes in the pavement were designed to hold water jugs while
they were being filled.


A photo from inside the Pool of Siloam looking up at the excavated side. This site was discovered in 2004.

Toni and Galyn exchange photos from the topand bottom of the Pool of Siloam while excavation continues at the site.

This is an illustration of what the Pool of Siloam would have looked like. The photo above corresponds to the left side of this image. The area shown on the right side of the image is still unexcavated and so, still buried. The actual Herodian pavement can be seen in the bottom right corner of this picture in its actual relative position to
the pool.

A water trough beside the Pool of Siloam has holes to support water jugs as they were being filled.
