View looking west along the southern wall of the model of the Herodian Temple Mount.

In the upper portion of the images note the “windows” of the Royal Portico.  Below them, note the “pilasters and recesses” of the reconstruction.  These are based upon those found at the “Tomb of the Patriarchs”—a known Herodian structure located in Hebron.

Stairs on the far left (west) lead down from the Robinson’s Arch area.  Those just left (west) of center lead down from the “Double Gate,” while those lower right (east) lead  up to the “Triple Gate.”

In the lower left portion of the image is a structure with a pyramid shaped roof—this is a representation Huldah Monument (possibly named after the Old Testament prophetess; 2 Kings 22:14–20).
