Pool of Raranj

The Pool of Raranj is a small pool on the Temple Mount near the Fountain of Qasim Pasha. It was restored during the reign of Sultan al-Ashraf Qait Bey and again in 1527 by Qasim Pasha the Governor of Jerusalem. In 1922, the Supreme Muslim Council reconstructed the pool, paved it with marble and encircled it with banisters. The pool is seven metres wide.[1]
