(Roman Temple 48 km)

Situated 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.
