The writer describes the excavations at Ramat Rạhel, focusing on the past population's sophisticated water system and management. Despite the absence of a permanent and reliable water source on the hill site at Ramat Rạhel, the site's inhabitants managed to maintain a well-tended garden with pools, Second Temple ritual baths, and a Roman bathhouse. Excavations revealed various water-collecting installations, including at least three water pools, three well-built water tunnels, stone-carved drains, and, possibly, an underground reservoir.
