The Royal Stoa
The Royal Stoa, also known as the Royal Portico, was an ancient basilica constructed by Herod the Great during his renovation of the Temple Mount at the end of the 1st century BC. Shown here is a model of it. A center of public and commercial activity, the Stoa was the likely location of Jesus' Cleansing of the Temple, according to Wikipedia. It was the place from which a ram's horn was blown to announce the start of holy days.
