This photograph was included in Frith's publication 'Sinai and Palestine' which was released to the market in 1862.
En-Rogel (or Ein Rogel) was a spring on the outskirts of Jerusalem which is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as the hiding place of King David's spies, Jonathan and Ahimaaz, during Absalom's uprising against the rule of King David (2 Samuel 17:17). The spring is also mentioned as one of the borders separating the territories of the Hebrew tribes Judah and Benjamin (Joshua 15:7, 18:16).
Mount Moriah (the Temple Mount) with the dome of Al-Aqsa Mosque can be seen in the background on the left side of the photograph.
