Herod’s Palace Excavations
Color photo of the Excavations of the Palace of Herod the Great in Jerusalem.
“Wondrous Beyond Words” – Flavius Josephus
These are the actual remains of the original Palace of Herod, it was truly magnificent, built as a fortress to protect the city of Jerusalem. The banquet halls could handle hundreds of guests. It was surrounded with groves of trees, canals, and ponds studded with bronze fountains. Herod’s Palace is most likely the praetorium mentioned in the Bible as the place of the trial of Jesus. We know about Herod and his buildings through the writings of Josephus, Strabo, Dio Cassius, Jewish Literature, archaeology, and the Bible.
