(Times of Israel) The remains of a 2,000-year-old ritual bath have come to light in Jerusalem, Israeli archaeologists say.

The unusually complex bath was uncovered near the modern-day Jerusalem neighborhood of Kiryat Menachem, and would have been in use around the time of the Second Temple, according to a statement Wednesday from the Israel Antiquities Authority. The remains were found in a salvage dig ahead of the construction of a new road.
