The first mining in this cave is dated to the First Temple period. As years passed, various historical events occurred here.

King Zedekiah hid there from the Chaldeans and fled through it to the Dead Sea. The Muslims identify it as a place where the earth swallowed Korach and his followers. Additionally, members of the Freemasonry order use it for their gatherings. The length of the cave is 225 meters and the way it was tunneled allows easy touring for families, as well as for professional travelers.

The project includes:

  1. Ensuring the cave’s safety
  2. Lightning and electricity
  3. Accessibility
  4. Content representations
  5. Widening the entrance
