The Steps Needed to be Narrow

After many years of negotiations and planning, the Archaeological Garden above the Menachem Begin Heritage Center is taking shape.

One aspect was puzzling.

The entrance is odd as it starts very wide and then narrows.  It seems inadequate for the groups who will be coming to see ruins of a Byzantine church, Roman remains, Second Temple burial caves and  Ottoman elements.

I asked and the reason is that to the left as one ascends in a portion of the wall of the church:

and to the right is a pit or perhaps a cave (where the wood poles are):

In other words, to preserve these remains, an adjustment need to be made to the design of the steps.
