View looking north at the base of the limestone cliff at the opening of a not-too-deep cave from which the spring used to originate.  Due to seismic activity the source of the spring is slightly to the south now.

Excavations have shown that a temple dedicated to the Roman Emperor Augustus (27 B.C. — A.D.14) was built there by Herod the Great (after 20 B.C.).  But not too much of this temple remains.
