Discover a Byzantine cistern under a Jerusalem playground

Jerusalem – During the renovation of a playground in the centre of Jerusalem, in the residential district of Katamon, a large water cistern in excellent condition came to light. The cistern dates back to the Byzantine era (about 1500 years ago) and can hold over a million litres of water. The City of Jerusalem and the Israel Antiquities Authority are working to turn this sensational new discovery into a public site as soon as possible.
