The palace was a center of royal activity, with the fate of princes being decided within it. After the fall of the dynasty, al-Sinnabra declined and the palace was dismantled down to its foundations.
Greenberg says that, “… because of its unique location next to an earlier Byzantine church and a short distance away from the historical cemetery of early Zionist pioneers… the more ancient remains at the site as well as the lake itself, we have a remarkable convergence of natural and historic values that represent the full complexity of the heritage of present-day Israel.”
