View looking south along the eastern wall of the Donuktash.   The preserved portion of this foundation reaches to a height of about 15 ft. [4.6 m.]. This foundation wall is 335 ft. [102 m.] long — about the length of a football field!

The foundation seems to be composed of a hardened conglomerate of medium size pebbles.  In ancient times it was probably faced with marble.  Note how upper levels overhang the lower ones—a rather unusual formation.
