“Zedekiah’s cave” is an ancient hugh (5 acre) stone quarry, under most of the Muslim Quarter. 

It was discovered by chance in the 19th century, and to this day its date and function are not quite certain. 

It was most likely a quarry from Roman times, perhaps producting some of the stones for the construction of the Herodian Temple Mount .
