Discover prime examples of Imperial Roman architecture at Temples of Baalbek. Colossal columns, intricately detailed stonework, and the integrity and authenticity of its sanctuaries have earned the complex the status of a World Heritage Site. See the delicately carved Corinthian capitals on the Bacchus temple, roof sculptures representing Mark Anthony and Cleopatra, and lions heads on Jupiter's temple. The ancient city started out as a Phoenician sanctuary dedicated to a triad of deities, thrived under the name of Heliopolis during Hellenistic and Roman periods, and reached its peak under the Roman Empire. It suffered a lot of damage over the centuries--from earthquakes, Christian iconoclasts, and Muslim rulers. The stones of the temples were reused many times in the construction of fortification walls and other structures.

One of the great wonders of Lebanon and the Roman World. Located at the heart of the great city of Baalbeck. Thousand year old columns. meters high and splendid interior. Highly recommended visit
Thousands of years of history well preserved and maintained. If you've never had a guided tour I highly recommend it, even having read plenty and visited many times, a well educated guide (as available on site) can make it that much more enjoyable and educational.
