Temple Mosaic from Khirbet Samara

Khirbet Samara, an ancient Samaritan Synagogue near ancient Samaria (Sebaste), contains the finest ancient mosaic of the Temple, although probably using the Samaritan temple at Gerizim as a prototype.  The mosaics are now on display at the recently opened Museum of the Good Samaritan midway between Jerusalem and Jericho.  Here are three photos of the mosaic.
