Herod the Great built this monumental fortress and palace in the Judean desert south of Jerusalem, and was buried here. The site was a rebel stronghold during the great revolts against the Romans. It is one of the most exciting archaeological sites in Israel.

When I view your pictures many a times you take me back to when I was in school where we would learn about Herod and what was called "Histoire sainte"
Still standing the pillars add to give this composition a historic loook.
Wonderful capture from a great monument with perfect details!
Perfect use of the daylight and nice sharpness and POV make this work very eyecatching.
Very well seen!
C'est une image intéréssante, prise au bon moment.
Le soleil donne une belle clarté aux colonnes.
Endroit très pierreux et mystérieux.
Joyeuse semaine à vous.
