In the tunnels visitors can see residential areas and public places from centuries ago, including structures from the Second Temple period, Middle Ages, and modern times as well. During a visit here you will discover a water system from the Second Temple period and the Hasmonean period, with a gate and entrance towards the Temple Mount. You can see here the places where people lived their lives. The tunnels start from the Western Wall square, all the way to the other side of the tunnels, inside the Muslim Quarter.
During these digs, the tunnels slowly became apparent, was with its impressive spaces, a sort of a tunnel into the past, it seemed as though the Hasmoneans were coming back alive. Here the real extent of the massive Western Wall were exposed, the support system built by Herod's men and engineers for the Temple Mount compound. There are areas in the wall where some of the individual rocks at the base are a couple meters long, and its hard to imagine how they were moved around.
Apart from antiquities, the tunnels have visual effects such as models and 3D images of the Temple Mount during the various periods, and animated films that show how such impressive buildings were built during the period of the Temple.
Entrance to the tunnels is from the vault connecting the Western Wall square and Al-Wad street in the Muslim Quarter.
