The palace apparently served as the seat of the city's governor representing the king of Judah. The huge palace complex from the time of King Hezekiah extended over more than 12.5 dunams (1.25 hectares) and included a large courtyard, a central structure and auxiliary structures that served as storerooms or stables. From the central structure, which covered an area of 2.5 dunams (0.25 hectares), only the foundation survived. The palace hosted visiting kings and it may be assumed that King Amaziah (who ruled Judah between 798 and 769 BCE) fled here from Jerusalem and was murdered here.

The palace was constructed in three stages during the ninth and eighth centuries BCE, during which it was extended to the south and east.
