Jericho’s hidden gem.

I found out last night that at a ceremony held at Hesham’s Palace, the Ministry of Tourism unveiled the floor mosaic of the great bath in the palace. This is the biggest intact piece of mosaic in the world (827 square meters)! Hopefully, through a huge donation from the Japan government, the big bath will be roofed and then special walkways would be arranged so people can see this masterpiece when they visit the historical site. The unveiling is to celebrate the commencement of this new project. The mosaic contains 38 panels and 21 warm colors. These are a few photos to give you a glimpse of this marvelous piece of our history, art, and culture.
