Top of Masada. This picture was taken from the top of Masada. One can see the Dead Sea in the distance.
Masada was built by Herod the Great, King of Israel, somewhere in the neighborhood of 36-30 BCE. It was strongly fortified and unapproachable by any armed force of the time. It was a pleasure palace with supplies of food and water which could have lasted almost indefinitely.
