Monument to Greatness and Craziness of Herod the Great

Man made mountain in the middle of the Judean desert, a fortress-tomb- monument built by Herod to honor... Himself. Well preserved, still under excavation. Easy to get to by car or cab, perfectly safe. Very interesting, we had a fun and educational trip.

Fantastic tunnels
