Duby Tal and Moni Haramati, Albatross

A fragmentary reminder of the Roman presence in Israel, the northern entrance of the temple at Kedesh stands much as it has stood since the temple’s destruction more than 1,600 years ago. Built in the second century A.D., the temple was probably a destination for pilgrims seeking guidance from the deity whose statue was housed inside. Today, it is an isolated and little-known site, rarely seen by visitors to northern Israel.
