Ceremonial platform

The High Place itself on the crest of the mountain is an enigmatic ceremonial platform with remains of a triclinium (benches for festive meals), a stone block as repository of the god statue, as well as a circular altar, both preceded by three steps. It is assumed that it was dedicated to the main male and female Nabatean gods Dushara and Al-'Uzza.
