Boasting views of snow-capped Mount Lebanon, Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar offers the chance to learn about the rich history of the country. Now an archaeological site near the border of Syria and Lebanon, the complex was once a prosperous town, which sadly met its end quickly and suddenly. Hear more about the town's past and its abrupt demise from local tour guides, and see the remaining buildings, built in a style reminiscent of ancient Roman architecture. Visit the bath houses, decorated with mosaics from the eighth century CE. You can shop for some souvenirs, handmade jewelry, or handicrafts made by local artisans in several shops on site. Arrange your visit to Umayyad Ruins of Aanjar and discover more family-friendly attractions in Anjar using our Anjar vacation builder.
