Siloam Pool



A stepped pool was discovered at the mouth of the Central or Tyropoeon Valley, which is located between the Western and Eastern Hills of Jerusalem. This large pool served as one of the water reservoirs of Jerusalem. The building with the double entrance at the top of the drawing probably had a religious function. It was perhaps in that building that the blind man, who was healed by Jesus, washed himself (John 9: 7-11).
