Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Probably the porch of the "House of the Forest." Porches of columns immediately in front of columnar chambers were a favorite feature of Persian architecture.

Most of the Persepolitan porches had small pillared chambers at some little distance in front of them.
