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.

Temples of Baalbek Reviews
The temple is very grand. a lot of it is ruined but you can see the gigantic monuments that are architecturally stunning more »
This is a definite must visit in Lebanon. The Roman ruins here are one of the best preserved ruins I've seen. The only problem is this place is exceedingly popular and hence not easy to take pics... more »
Awesome Roman ruins, worth the visit. You can see the mountains in the background it is very nice.
Awesome. I cannot put it into words. You have to come and see for yourself. It is very safe to come.
