Exciting historic place

Not far from Jerusalem can be found the Herodyon National Park that is really a place must be visited. The archaeological job is still not finished but what onecan see is amazing. It gives a historic experience about Herodes and how he lived, ruled the region and was burried.

The Herodian, or Herodyon, sits atop a large man-made (Roman era) hill in southern Israel. With views in every direction from the edge of the hill, as well as Roman ruins below the excavated center, this site provides visitors with a chance to step back in time. Good footpath leading up to the top from the wonderful gift shop at the base. A must see on any extended trip to the Middle East.
