The history of Jerusalem spans thousands of years, from the ancient Hebrews to the modern-day State of Israel. Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, the Crusaders, the Turks, and the British all left their impact on the city, and today it is riddled with tunnels large and small, ancient and modern. The visible part of the city is merely the tip of the iceberg, and it is hard to imagine the mysteries down the abysm when walking through the sun-drenched streets. A tunnel tour Jerusalem is certainly one of the most exotic ones out of those offered by Genesis Boutique Travel, and one that will leave memories lasting for years.
The Western Wall tunnels run hundreds of meters along the Western Wall and give tourists a unique opportunity to take a glance at ancient Jerusalem. Despite being thousands of years old, they were discovered by the British only in the 19 century, and proper excavation did not begin till after the Six Day War which saw all of Jerusalem unified as the indivisible capital of Israel. One of the tunnels' segment is believed to be the closest to where the Holy of Holies was located, and a small synagogue is built nearby.
The Siloam Tunnels, built by King Hezekiah, are another example of Jerusalem tunnels open to the public. As mentioned in the Bible, they were built to ensure continuous water supply to Jerusalemites when the city was under threat of invasion.
