The pools, located south of Bethlehem, were a part of an ancient waterway system supplying water to Jerusalem, Herodion and Bethlehem.

Ramadan Nights at the Solomon Pools BethlehemThis year the organizers of the first Solomon Pools’ Ramadan Nights Festival offer you a long list of cultural and social events at the complex surrounding the ancient pools. Every evening, during Ramadan (10.07 – 10.08.2013), besides the shopping possibilities of the vibrant Sultan Bazaar, the audiences will be entertained by singers and dancers performing traditional Palestinian songs.

During the month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to sunset, with the month ending with the Eid-al Fitr celebration. Thus the site becomes alive just around 9 pm and the events are scheduled for night hours.

The aim of the festival is to highlight the importance of Solomon’s Pools as a heritage site. The complex offers also a Murad Castle Museum and Kani Mani Restaurant in a beautiful setting of the ancient 17th century small Turkish castle, built to guard the pools.
