The Legends of Zedekiah’s Cave

Created by All About Jerusalem, this video (03:27) introduces the mysterious site of Zedekiah’s Cave (also known as King Solomon’s Quarries and the Cave of the Kings), a 5 acre underground quarry beneath the Muslim Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. A site shrouded in mystery and legend, it has been suggested that both the First and Second Temples were built using stones from this quarry and that King Zedekiah fled the falling city through this cave, as Jerusalem was captured by the Chaldeans. A beautiful archaeological site, the cave is often used as a venue for events, concerts and performances.
