“Ancient and Beautiful”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Herod's palace on a mountain.. Probably the mountain Jesus was referring to when he said.. believe you can move mountains.. as that is just was Herod did.. and why it has remained more in tact than most of the other ancient sites.

“Unique”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

A wonderful place and the history is enjoyable. You can see it from a distance and looks amazing. It seems like a lot of walking on a hot day, but inside your protected from the sun.

“Interesting historical site”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Really fun to be seeing a man-made hill where you can live inside. We enjoyed seeing the place inside and out. Be warned that it can be hard to bring a stroller, and that bringing a wheel chair around basically is not possible.

Great view from the top.

Good little trip from Jerusalem.

“Great archeological site”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

It was one of King Herod's palaces and sites in the area of Jerusalem, in the last years the mausoleum was located, but the site is very impressive, and if possible, do make a point in visiting it, for the impressive location and all what was built there.

“King Herod Place of Safety”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This is the place where King Herod took safety from his enemies. Even though King Herod was a mad man, this place is an architecture wonderland. A must visit to appreciate history and architecture genius designs.
