Addendum to the previous post

... after we completed our tour of the Holy Sepulcher, we exited the old city walls and walked to the entrance of Zediekiah's Cave, also known as Solomon's Quarries (Although historical evidence that this cave is related to Solomon is somewhat vague). This man-made cave totaling 5 acres (about 5 city blocks) was carved out the stone over several thousand years.

From Wiki:'s_Cave

As we entered the cave, the entire length of the passage was lit by hundreds of candles. We continued down several hundred feet only to find that HP had set up a closing event dinner/concert on a HUGE platform in one of the main chambers. It was one of the most unique events that Jeanne or I have ever attended.
