Jerusalem: Herod's Theater
King Herod the Great built an impressive Theatre in the affluent Upper City of Jerusalem.

Herod's Theater in First Century Jerusalem Herod the Great had also built a THEATRE in the Upper City. It was a large, open-air auditorium with semicircular rows of seats ascending from a central stage. Wealthy Jews came there to watch the best of Greek and Roman drama. Most traditional Jews, however, scorned this and other outgrowths of Greco-Roman culture as immoral. The model at the Holy Land Hotel is a Scholar's conception showing how the site may have looked in Jesus' day.
