This Israelite sanctuary stood inside the fortress and is evidence of the widespread worship at cult centres outside Jerusalem prior to the centralizing reforms attributed in the Bible to king Josiah. A meter-high stone monument, painted red, originally stood on the raised platform of the holy of holies here.
