Gihon Spring

Gihon SpringThe Gihon Spring is located along the Kidron valley, just outside the old city of Jerusalem, yet is possibly the main reason Jerusalem was ever settled. Providing a critcial water supply in Canaanite and Israelite times, its water was used to wash off the ointment of King Solomon, and later its water was channeled into Hezekiah’s Tunnel  , which to this day feeds the Pool of Siloam  .

The Gihon Spring ( Hebrew: מעיין הגיחון) or Fountain of the Virgin in the Kidron Valley was the main source of water for the Pool of Siloam in the City of David, the original site of Jerusalem.

The City of David is south of the Old City of Jerusalem, and takes about 3-4 hours to explore.

Since I only offer full day tours, I recommend to contact me for a proposal of a full day tour of Jerusalem, that will also include the City of David.
