Hazor, The Head of All Those Kingdoms (Joshua 11:10), is the biggest and one of the most important archeological sites in Israel. The Orthostats Temple, which was most likely a sanctuary for the storm god Hadad, was first built during the late Middle Bronze period (1650-1550 BCE) and then went through a number of fazes and changes until its final destruction at the end of the Late Bronze period (late 13th century BCE). The temple is well-known, for its layout that very much resembles the one of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, which was constructed many years later. A pair of famous Lions of Hazor may have originally guarded the entrance to the Orthostats Temple
