Did Jesus Walk Here?

What you see in this picture is an excavated street in ancient Jerusalem just below the south wall of the temple mount. It was still being excavated when I took this picture.

When Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD it was covered over with dirt so the actual streets that Jesus walked on are underground. 

This very narrow street between two rows of homes and led up to three great doors into the Temple. This street and the Western Wall may be the only streets where the public can see where Jesus actually walked.
