When we approach the city Mount Herodion can be seen striking in the distance. Herod built the Second Temple (By the way you can fly with us amazing flight following the construction projects of Herod) was considered by Jews at the time cruel ruler. He was afraid that the Jews will demolish his tomb and therefore wanted to be buried in place far enough from Jerusalem but overlooking the city. By the way according to Christianity Herod ordered the killing of all the children in Bethlehem because of the news of the birth of Christ.
