Photographer's Note

Ancient ruins are constantly competed with by fresh ones in Lebanon.

This ancient Roman temple is located in Mount-Lebanon, 45Km from Beirut, in Faqra (one of the largest and most important religious centers in Lebanon in ancient times), part of the town of Kfardebian.

The temples of Qalaat Faqra at 1,550 meters are the most extensive Roman ruins of all Mount Lebanon.

Approached through a labyrinth of limestone formations known as “houses of ghosts,” (some of which you can see on the left of the temple) the area is known for its temples and its good skiing. The temple site is also the venue of a summer cultural festival.



For more information about this site you can visit:
The Official Lebanese Tourism Portal or The Kfardebian Municipality Website

Now may not seem like the time to adverstise touristic sites in Lebanon, but I believe there is no wrong or right time to show what richness and diversity a country harbours.
