Hisham's Palace is located in the northeastern part of Jericho. It was built in the 8th century AD. This grandiose architectural structure at that time was destroyed during a strong earthquake shortly after the completion of construction work.
At present, you can see numerous fragments of ancient mosaics, the ruins of a colonnade, a mosque, baths. Even judging only by these remains, one can imagine how majestic and magnificent was the palace of Hisham, which was a vivid example of Umayyad architecture.
