Following the conquest of Jerusalem by Hz. Salahuddin Ayyubi رحمة الله عليه in 1187, the Templars made their home in Acre and began to build their quarter in the City’s southwest section.

The Templer tunnel is 150 meters long and it extends from the Templars fortress in the west to the city’s port in the east.

The tunnel was discovered in 1994.
