Podzemni kompleks uklesan u stijenu prije otprilike dvije tisuće godina otkriven je blizu jeruzalemskog Zapadnog zida, objavili su u utorak izraelski arheolozi.

Kompleks se sastoji od nekoliko prostorija i otvorenog dvorišta, a vjeruje se da su ga koristili stanovnici Jeruzalema prije no što su Rimljani 70. godine nakon opsade grada uništili Drugi hram.

Istraživači su otkriće prozvali "nevjerojatnim pronalaskom“ i dodali da se još uvijek ne zna čemu je služila te građevina koja je prije 1400 godina, u vrijeme Bizanta, prekrivena drugom zgradom.

"Pitanje je zašto su toliki trud i materijali iskorišteni za klesanje podzemnih prostorija u tvrdoj stijeni?“, priopćili su Barak Monnickendam-Givon i Tehila Sadiel, voditelji iskapanja.

U kompleksu je pronađeno nekoliko predmeta poput kuhinjskog pribora, ostataka uljanih lampi i dijela kamene zdjele koja se koristila u židovskim ritualima.

Zapadni zid jedan je od preostalih zidova uništenog Drugog hrama i smatra se najvažnijim svetištem judaizma.
