View looking down into the middle  portion  of the Diagonal Tunnel .

At this point the tunnel is about 6.5 ft. [2 m.] high.

The Diagonal Tunnel leads down, from within the ancient city,  to a pool that was fed by the Gihon Spring, from which water was drawn.  It evidently dates back to the Middle Bronze II Age (= ca. 1800 B.C.) and was used for many centuries.
