    Herod's Western Palace is within the Masada Fortress which is within Masada National Park. All three of these attractions should be merged into one as most people do not know the difference between them. Most of the reviews written for all three are actually for the fortress. There are few reviews for the National Park and Herod's Western Palace.
    Herod's Western Palace is on the western side of the fortress, between the Byzantine Gate and the Byzantine Church. There are some nice floor mosaics. Architecturally it is not as visually intriguing as the northern palace. There are some nice views of the Roman siege camps towards the west.

    the ruins normally is not the place visited, people always visit the Natural Reserve but the ruins are very near as well.
    The highlight of the ruins of this small settlement, it was a rich place and specialized in ancient times till it was destroyed by the roman army, in the first century CE, the main item to visit is the synagogue with a very rich and beautiful mosaic, worth a visit.

    The Chalcolithic temple – the ruins of an ancient temple, close to En Gedi Spring.

    The temple is attributed to the Chalcolithic period (over 5,000 years ago), and attracted the faithful from the surrounding area.
    Its a steep climb till you get to the site, but the view of the Dead Sea and the effort was well worth it.

    Nearby is the Ein Gedi source a place you can stop to eat your sandwich and rest before descending.
