A large rectangular courtyard was located near the northern round tower. Colonnades and covered arcades surrounded it. Around this courtyard, gardens were bloomed, and there were various rooms — for example, the king’s throne room and a bath for ritual bathing - a mikvah. During excavations, stones were discovered that were used by the Romans in the siege of fortresses. These findings tell of the fate of Herodion during the Bar Kochba rebellion.
