Jerusalem: Hippodrome
King Herod built a massive Sports Hippodrome in the south near the Synagogue of the Freedmen. He built it like a Roman Circus, for chariot races.

The Sports Hippodrome South near the Synagogue of the Freedmen was the Hippodrome, built by Herod like a Roman Circus, for chariot races. THE SPORTS HIPPODROME The sports Hippodrome was built by Herod the Great like a Roman circus, for chariot races. The spectators sat on stair-like seats around a central space, which had in the middle a large partition that the chariots raced around. This model at the Holy Land Hotel is a Scholar's conception showing how the site may have looked in Jesus' day.
