Hammat Gader as it appears today. Some architectural elements, such as the colonnade screen and many of the fountains, have been restored. Others were found well preserved; the walls at the far end of the Hall of Pillars rose more than 25 feet. The excavated area of the thermae covers 1 1/3 acres; the original complex may have been even larger (see plan).
