(Roman Remains 44 km)

Take the Rashaya road from Masnaa and continue four kilometers on to Aiha, parking near the pond at the center of the village. Aiha is built on the foundations of numerous Roman temples and structures. In some cases Roman walls have been reused in present-day houses and once-visible temple foundations have disappeared into modern structures as basements. At one household, a stone relief carving of a robed figure sits in the yard. Alongside it is ancient stone well and temple debris.
    Numerous column drums, moldings and dressed stones have been incorporated into the walls in the village's northwest section, and massive retaining walls of the Roman enclosure terrace can still be seen-now as part of modern houses.
    Aiha's residents will gladly show you around their intriguing town.
