Ruines of the Hercules Temple at Citadel Hill (Jabal al Qal'a)
Jordan, Amman, May 2009

The great temple of Hercules (Herakles) was built between 162-166 AD. Larger than any temple in Rome itself, the massive structure faces east and is seen here from the southeast corner. The temple portico is framed by six 33-foot tall columns: http://www.art-and-archaeology.com/jordan/amman/cit01.html

I wonder why these haven't fallen over! The hole in some of the stones on the ground make me wonder if there was a rod down the middle of the stack that made up a columns. It's nearly impossible for me to get my mind around any structure of this type being almost a thousand years old....any structure actually.

That is true Larry. In Roman times that was the way to put the pilar stones together.
