Dyers Quarter

The Dyers quarter or launderer's quarter was an area in the upper city of ancient Jerusalem where there were dyers and bleachers of wool cloth, the smell was hideous and therefore was located quite a distance away from the market between the palace of Herod and the city wall. This area was possibly the location of the Upper Room. In the writings of Josephus he described the whole entire area of the western hill as the "upper agora."
