The fortress Machaerus( now Mukawer) was originally built by the Hasmonean king Alexander Jannaeus around 90 BC, destroyed by the Romans and rebuilt by Herod the Great in 30 BC to be used as a military base in his territories east of the Jordan River. His successor was his son Herod Antipas, well known for his role leading to the death of John the Baptist. Antipas decided to divorce and marry the wife of his brother, Herodias. John the Baptist critized in the public this behaviour, so Herod Antipas imprisoned him at Machaerus. After Herodias' daughter Salome danced before the king she was rewarded with the death of John the Baptist.
Excellent composition...very nice PHOTO!
