CORINTHIAN COLUMNS line the northern façade of the Royal Portico in this reconstruction. The spacing and alignment of the columns and the entablature atop them reflect the major innovations of Orit Peleg-Barkat’s research. Peleg-Barkat proposes that the architectural fragments retrieved from the debris at the foot of the southern enclosure wall of the Temple Mount allow for the first time a detailed reconstruction of the Royal Portico.
