Jerusalem: Palace of Caiaphas
This palace in first century Jerusalem was a gorgeous palace sitting on a hill in the Upper City.

The Palace of Caiaphas in First Century Jerusalem This is where informal meetings of a small Sanhedrin were held. Peter denied Jesus in one of these courts. This model at the Holy Land Hotel is a Scholar's conception showing how the site may have looked in Jesus' day. This Ossuary of Caiaphas was discovered in Jerusalem by archaeologists. It was carved from limestone and bears the name "Caiaphas", the name of the Temple High Priest during the time of Christ. Ossuaries were typically used to hold the bones of the dead.
