The 10th century BCE Large Stone Structure (“David’s Palace”) in blue, supported by the buttressing Stepped Stone Structure in yellow. The Stepped Stone Structure filled in a large void in the bedrock just north of the Jebusite citadel, allowing the Large Stone Structure to be built atop and adjoining the citadel. Various scriptures reference the palace of David in relation to a stepped structure, as well as on the high northern edge of the existing citadel. Click to enlarge.
