The administration of Historical Area Protection has carried out research work and asked the old people of Jeddah about the location of the spring. Late Sheik Muhammed AL-Royyes was able to identify its position and described some of its parts. Other old people described its features before it completely disappeared. The matter was put up before the Governor of Makkah Region who approved to start the digging and searching work in the location, in coordination with all concerned authorities, the digging started in 1416 H under the supervision of Eng. Sami Nawar the director of historical area. The digging was carried out skillfully. Old items and coins were found. There were also seven vaults with seven reservoirs. Still there is a part of this spring buried under some shops. There are suggestions for building shelters to protect the site in addition to a glass hedge, then opening the site for visitors and tourists to become a historical and recreational site at the historical area of Jeddah.

Address: At Al Mathloum/Al Yamen Dist.
