The Pool of Siloam
The Pool of Siloam was a rock-cut pool on the southern slope of the City of David, the original site of Jerusalem, located outside the walls of the Old City to the southeast. The pool was fed by the waters of the Gihon Spring, carried there by two aqueducts. In the 5th century, a pool was constructed at the end of the Siloam Tunnel and survives to the present day (pictured). Until the discovery of the Second Temple pool of Siloam, this pool was wrongly thought to be the pool described in the New Testament.
