New Discoveries near the Temple Mount

The only known above ground Mikveh has recently been discovered near the Temple Mount. A Mikveh is a ritual purification bath and this one measures 10 meters by 10 meters.

Also discovered was an Egyptian scarab dating to King Solomon’s time, suggesting some type of connection with Egypt and perhaps some Egyptian influence in Israel at that time. See here for more information.
