Double Gate passageway northeast dome



The northeast dome of the Double Gate Passageway isonly partially decorated. Two decorated pendentive stones of the Herodian dome have survived at opposite corners of this dome .

This dome may have fallen during the original construction or because of an earthquake.

Nevertheless, it is possible to reconstruct a large wreath of interweaving strands that create scrolls filled with rosettes in between two egg-and-dart motives that surrounded a central design that, apart from a wave pattern has not survived.
