These are the excavated remains of a 40-foot terrace which was attached to a temple at Mari referred to as the "Temple of Lions" by excavators. The temple, also known as the "Temple of the King of the Land" was built by the ruler, Ishtup-Ilum, in the 22nd century BCE and dedicated to the god, Degan. The temple and terrace were excavated at the site, modern-day Tell Hariri, Syria, in the 20th century CE.
