Herod's Man-Made Mountain
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 1 day ago

Another one of Herod the Great’s building projects. The shear enormity of making the original hill higher so that he could see Jerusalem makes visiting this historical site worthwhile. The ruins are good and there are explanatory signs all around. The walk downward through the tunnels and water system is incredible.

Herodium in the occupied Palestine territories just outside Jerusalem was another massive man made tel constructed by Herod for a palace with a massive stairway up the tel and a fascinating exit down the water system tunnels. There is supposed to be a tomb said to be that of King Herod, as well as the remains of a palace, bathhouse, theatre and synagogue. Built 23-15 BC. Sacked by the Romans in 71 AD. There are many tunnels to explore. I loved the sign for the rolling stones used by the Jewish rebels against the Romans during the revolt well after Herod's death.
