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).
