Long Axis:
 N–S

Notes:
 Mud brick house on stone foundations. Multiple construction phases evident. Lowest courses of the foundation are constructed of square-hewn stones, suggesting that the house is probably built upon the foundations of a Pre-Islamic structure (perhaps a platform temple). Latest phases of this structure are in excellent condition; the interior room even has its walls’ mud plaster intact.
