During King Herod's reign (37-4 BCE) Jerusalem grew northward. Monumental building projects included the Second Wall, the expansive and magnificent Temple Mount, the Antonia Fortress andthe Citadel (today's Tower of David). Numerous palaces as well as public buildings, such as markets, a theater and a hippodrome,enhanced the city. Besides large-scale construction, Herodian and late-Second Temple era Jerusalem witnessed religious and socialferment. Fierce controversies broke out between various sects and factions.
