Transcript JERUSALEM. 45 the hill on the north has been traced for some distance along the line of the Via Dolorosa, and it can be seen in two vaulted passages or souter'rains which lie beneath the street. At the end of one of the souierrains there is a rock-hewn aqueduct, from twenty to thirty feet high, which brought water from the north. It is an old and important work, but no one has yet been able to find the source from which it derived its supply of water. The eastern portion of the north side of the Haram esh Sherif is protected by the Birket Israil, known traditionally as the Pool of Bethesda. The reservoir is situated in a valley which takes its rise to the north of the city wall, and runs out into the Kedron valley about one hundred and forty-three feet south of the north-east angle of the Haram enclosure. The valley is now little more than a shallow depression, but excavations have shown that in the lower portions of its course it assumes the character of a deep ravine, and that its bed is no less than one hundred and forty feet below the surface of the Temple platform. The Birket Israil is three hundred and sixty feet long, one hundred and twenty- six feet wide, and eighty feet deep, but its great size can hardly be appreciated on account STREET OF THE GATE OF THE CHAIN. of the rubbish, which rises tO a a narrow picturesque street, with projecting lattice-work windows of many kinds.
