View looking northwest at the reconstructed remains of the three–part Israelite Temple!

Just right of center the stone sacrificial altar is visible. It is of biblical dimensions — 5 x 5 x 3 cubits and had a flint slab on the top surface where the sacrifices were actually offered. It is situated in a large area equivalent to the "courtyard" of the Tabernacle or Solomon’s Temple.

At the far end of the courtyard are a broad rectangular room (= "Holy Place"?) and a small area with incense altars and two standing stones (= "Most Holy Place"?).

This temple, like the Tabernacle and Solomonic temple, has its entrance on the east and the "Most Holy Place" on the west!
