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
This place is a must visit in lebanon. It's far from the city, but worth visiting it. I really liked this temple! more »
We walked to the site from our hotel Palmyra to find it capsule tucked away behind the gas station. No formal entrance and no fees. The prices at the souvenir shop at the site are higher than those..... 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.
