Zedekiah's Cave

Jerusalem Highlight Zedekiah's Cave

Looking for a secret grotto underneath the Old City? Visit Zedekiah’s Cave (or Solomon's Quarries). It is the largest man-made cave in Israel and the most important of Jerusalem's ancient quarries. Its importance lies in the fact that the major quarry layers consist of “Melekeh” stone. Many Jerusalem monuments have been constructed using this type of limestone with the most well known site being the Temple Mount.

Opening hours
Visits possible only in June, July and August (9 AM-10 PM).
