Recent excavations at Khirbet Qeiyafa have uncovered unique cultic shrine dated to early 10th century BCE. Made out of stone and painted red, the façade of the shrine displays two important architectural features that may aid our attempts to reconstruct the temple built by King Solomon as described in 1 Kings 6-7. The first feature is triglyph (grouping of three roof-beams/planks) and the second is the recessed door and windows.
