Comments: Corinthian columns and painted walls on the lower terrace below the Northern Palace at Masada, a site of ancient palaces and fortifications in the Southern District of Israel, on top of an isolated rock plateau on the eastern edge of the Judaean Desert, overlooking the Dead Sea. Visitors can be seen on top looking down at the view. Masada is best known for the violence that occurred there in the first century CE. The Siege of Masada by troops of the Roman Empire led to the mass suicide of the Sicarii rebels including women and children. The site today is a museum with cable car leading from a modern gift shop to the plateau top where visitors can see ruins of the ancient living quarters, wells and preserved wall murals.
