The Pool of Siloam, recorded in John 9, relates how Jesus healed a blind man by putting a mud mixture on his eyes and then telling him to wash it out. In the 1890s, a mosque was built next to the pool, which still stands today.

John 9:6-7
Having said this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes. "Go," he told him, "wash in the Pool of Siloam." So the man went and washed, and came home seeing. (NIV)
