The Hasmonean Dynasty ruled 142-37 BC. The Palace had a view of the Temple,
which angered the Jews. (El'baum 100).
See Josephus' Antiquities
|About the same time king Agrippa built himself a very large dining-room
in the royal palace at Jerusalem, near to the portico. Now this palace had
been erected of old by the children of Asamoneus. and was situate upon an
elevation, and afforded a most delightful prospect to those that had a mind
to take a view of the city, which prospect was desired by the king; and
there he could lie down, and eat, and thence observe what was done in the
temple; which thing, when the chief men of Jerusalem saw they were very
much displeased at it; for it was not agreeable to the institutions of our
country or law that what was done in the temple should be viewed by others,
especially what belonged to the sacrifices.|
