An image that appears to show several buildings carved into a mountain has been shared dozens of times on Facebook with a message asking who built the structure, which the author claims can be found in Africa. However, the monument isn’t real; it is a model of what King Herod’s palace could have looked like in biblical times, while the picture itself is a composite. The ruins on which the model is based are found in the Masada National Park in southern Israel and not in Africa.
