North Palace, Masada, Israel
Israel

Herod the Great developed Masada as a mountain fortress, where he could flee to in time of danger. He also built a pleasure palace on the narrow northern spur of the mountain. The upper level of the three-tiered palace housed his private accommodation and the lower levels were designed for relaxation and entertainment of special guests.

David used this mountain top as a stronghold, while he was fleeing from Saul (1 Samuel 22.4; 24.22; 2 Samuel 5.17).

More About Middle East

Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
