The Fountain of Job is infact an ancient well, so old that it is mentioned in the Book of Joshua.There is a legend that says that this is the spot where the sacred fire of the Temple was preserved during the captivity.It was contained there until the Temple was restored by Nehemiah.The European monks therefore named it the Well of Nehemiah after this legend, but the locals called it Byre Eyub,where as up until the sixteenth century it was known as En-Rogel.The well is situated below the junstion of the Valley of Hinnom and Jehoshaphat.
