According to Flavius Josephus, it is the location of the imprisonment and execution of John. According to the chronology of the Bible, this infamous execution took place in 32 AD shortly before the Passover, following an imprisonment of two years. The site also provides the setting for four additional New Testament characters: Herod the Great; his son, Tetrach Herod Antipas; his second wife, Princess Herodias, and her daughter, Princess Salome.

    So much fun because of the driver, Amr - the mosaic workshop was incredibly disappointing as it was really just a store.
