The “Canaanite Tunnel” links the Gihon spring water with the “Pool of Siloam“.
Carved before “Hezekiah’s tunnel“, and covered partially by large bolders, it is believed that this tunnel was made in the Middle Bronze period for the pupose of irrigating the agricultural terraces along the Kidron valley.
A third of it is open to the public, and unlike “Hezekiah’s tunnel” it is lit and completely dry.
