  Hisham's Palace
by duke0123

When you're in Jericho go to the palace of Hisham (Qirbat al-Mafyar).

The ruins of the palace are giving a good impression of this former pleasure-ground which was destroyed by an earthquake and never rebuilt.

In a travelogue I placed some pictures of the ruins of this palace.

Directions: The palace is located at the north of Jericho and about 2 kilometers of the Well of Elijah.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
