Pool of Siloam

Pool of SiloamThe “Pool of Siloam” (Hebrew: Pool of Siloach), is a rock-cut pool located at the southern end of the City of David   .

It was filled in antiquity by Hezekiah’s Tunnel   (Known also as the “Siloam Tunnel”).

In the first century CE it was used as a large public ritual bath, and according to the New Testament Jesus performed a miracle at the site (John 9:7).

The Pool of Siloam ( Arabic: بركه سلوان‎, Hebrew: בריכת השילוח, Breikhat HaShiloah) 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.
