northeast of Baalbeck above a deep and very pretty valley, the
slopes of this village are studded with the familiar burial
chambers often found near Roman/Byzantine sites.
The massive foundation stones of Nahle'
s Roman temple suggest that a
mighty structure once stood here.
This sanctuary consisted of two parts: an
open air court and a large room with a ceiling where notches
for the wooden beam still exist. Only a few courses of stone
are still standing, but the temple maintains its dignity
despite crowding by modern village residences.
