As part of Tzipori’s water system research, excavations were conducted in September 2019 to upgrade the site and develop tourism, which were on behalf of the Nature and Parks Authority under the management of Dr. Zvika Tzuk, Dr. Yossi Bordovich and Dr. Dror Ben Yosef with the assistance of Ahia Cohen-Tavor and the Antiquities Authority. The Mashhad pool was discovered during the excavations. Such a pool is rare in its shape and character. From its dating and shape that allows easy entry into shallow water that is slowly deepening, it is possible that this is a bird’s caravan.

Regarding Tzipori’s carriage, it is said: If this is true, then the pool was filled with aqueduct water because on hot summer days this is the only option to fill it with water. In winter however, it was impossible to prevent the pool from being filled with runoff water as happened after it was exposed. And in the photo above you can see what she looks like after the last rains.
