One of the greatest waterworks of the ancient world, Hezekiah’s Tunnel was carved to bring water from one side of the city of Jerusalem to the other. It was part of the aqueduct tunnel system of underground Jerusalem.

Hezekiah’s Tunnel was discovered by Edward Robinson in 1838. Robinson became the first man in modern times to traverse the Hezekiah tunnel, crawling the length of the passage, 1750 feet.
