On the way down from the High Place of Sacrifice and just after the Lion Fountain you come across the Garden Tomb. To the right and up a little is an ancient reservoir that was probably used to provide water for the former garden that was in front of this tomb. Its a tricky climb up to the reservoir but you get a sense that it must have been beautiful in the past.
