Photographer's Note

Been some time since I visited TE...

Continuing My Masada tour, I take you to the northern part of the mountain, where the famous three-level palace was carved into the stone's face. Beyond, the western lip (left) breaks the Dead sea plains, all painted with orange. To the right you can see Masada's north face, blunted three times, each floor arranged in a semi-circular architectural orientation.
This is one of the most daring architecture Hordus ordered built. From top to bottom the palace stretches across 30 meters of height with impressive supporting walls and Hellenistics as well as Roman decorations. On the top floor the king and his family were accommodated while the lower floors were aimed for the VIPs that visited the palace.
