The ruined walls of the rectangular west building at Kuntillet Ajrud occupy most of the summit of the hill. Closest to the observer is the entryway and immediately beyond is the bench-room with its small square storage room at either end (seen most clearly on the right side). In the foreground are fragments of walls and all that remains of another building which disappeared when the hill eroded.
