Hole At Upper The Ceiling Of Well Of Soul

Hole At Upper The Ceiling Of Well Of Soul

The hole at the upper ceiling of the Well of Souls, situated beneath the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, is an intriguing feature with a rich history. The hole, measuring approximately 0.46 meters in diameter, extends 1.7 meters upwards to the surface of the stone above. It has been a subject of scholarly inquiry and speculation regarding its origin and purpose. One theory posits that this shaft, with its 4,000-year-old age estimate, may be a remnant of a shaft tomb. Such tombs were used in ancient times for burial practices, and the presence of this shaft in the Well of Souls has prompted contemplation about its potential historical significance. Notably, there are no discernible rope marks within the shaft, leading to the conclusion that it was not employed as a well. Instead, it is surmised that the cave served as a cistern for water storage and other purposes.
