View looking down and west at the excavated area of the “original” Pool of Siloam. This pool dates to the New Testament (Second Temple) Period.
The pool may be the “Pool of Siloam” mentioned in John 9:7—to which Jesus sent a blind man to wash a mud mixture from his eyes.
John Seligman and Eli Shukrun who were checking the area prior to a public works project in the area discovered the pool in the summer of 2004.
