Warren’s Shaft

“Warren’s shaft” is named after Captain Charles Warren who first discovered a natural karstic shaft above the Gihon spring.

Warren’s Shaft links the curved Canaanite tunnel with the Gihon spring at the beginning of “Hezekiah’s tunnel”.

In the past it was suggest that this shaft was used by King David to enter and conquer the Jebusite city, as hinted in II Sam. 5:8.

The shaft is not accesible, but can be seen from above, at the bottom of the curved Canaanite tunnel.
