The Migdol Temple at Pella in Jordan.

The first photo shows the three major building phases of the temple that stretch from its construction in the Middle Bronze Age (1650 BC) to its destruction in the Iron Age (850 BC).

Second photo: In the foreground a large multi-roomed Iron Age (ca. 900 BC) complex is being excavated, while in the background, work is being undertaken to investigate deposits beneath the Middle Bronze Age temple structure (>1650 BC). Note the massive west exterior wall of the Migdol Temple seen in this image.
