The small corridor ended at 26 meters. The opinion that this place was mostly used as a cistern or material storage was dominant. The other and large corridor extends up to 250 meters. The cleaning works were completed here, and at the end, the water well was reached in an undisturbed state. Our esteemed teachers have two thoughts about this water well. The first of these is that it was used to avoid dehydration during the war. The other thought is that it was used for religious rites and blessings before the Christian era.
