The complex includes the pump house, the water tower and the storage pool. The water well was excavated in 1910 and potable water was discovered in it. The water was pumped to the storage pond and from there it was distributed to the agricultural areas. When concrete construction technology began to be used, a nearby water tower was built.
Over time, the storage pool also became a swimming pool; Wardrobes were added near the entrance, concrete stairs and iron railings were built inside the pool.
The well is currently used by Moshav Bnei Atarot. In the pump house, which is partially preserved, is located the pumping system of the well. Next to the Templar storage pool, Mekorot built a new, closed storage pool.
For several years the old pool was the swimming pool of Moshav Bnei Atarot. The water tower remains preserved but not in use.
From this compound exits west to the Templar cemetery, from which the historic stone wall and original vegetation survived. After the establishment of the state, the graves were transferred to the Templar Cemetery in Jerusalem.
