(IsraelNN.com) An ancient mikveh was discovered in Jerusalem by archaeologists during restoration work in the tunnels under the Western Wall.

Western-Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz was pleased at the find and said it further documented the Jewish past in the area. He added that it was "another level in exposing the splendid past of the Jewish people in the area."

The archaeologists from the Antiquities Authority said the mikveh is dated from the Second Temple period.
