The building has peculiar architectural elements, and the existence of groundwater was key for locating the miqwa'ot. The analysis of the architectural plan and the building system suggests that this ritual space on the outside had similar characteristics to other buildings in the city. However the interior and materials found inside reflrct a higher economic status for a privileged sector of Magdala's population. The miqwa'ot were constructed in the traditional manner, with stairs covered with a roof, a hewn basalt floor extended to the immediate rooms, but carefully ended at the room paved with mosaic. The urban layout analysis suggests that the street widens at the north, which indicates the importance of that space. The proposed hypothesis is that the main entrance to the building was in the north while the exit was located in the southeastern part leading into a minor street.
The reconstruction of this space, insofar as heights and proportions are concerned, was inspired by known models of other sites in Israel dated to the same period, while the analysis concerning access to this space was derived from the architectural study of the architectural study of the archaeological remains, the urban analysis of the buildings in the settlement, and the specifications of the law concerning ritual purity.
