Description

This reconstruction drawing of the Pool of Siloam is based on the excavations of Bliss and Dickie in the late 19th century. According to their plan, the pool had a dhad a double entrance that probably had something to do with a ritual function. The double entrance gave access to a colonnaded porch that was built round a pool. It received water from Hezekiah’s Tunnel. It was perhaps in this building that the blind man, who was healed by Jesus, washed himself (John 9:7-11).
