Roman Temples
(8 Km from Amioun)

    Located on a high plateau overlooking the Koura district, the Naous temples are reached by turning right after Kousba to the village of Ain Akreen. The temples are on the far side of the village.

    Here are two temples sites, each with enclosures and well-preserved doorways. The reconstructed "eastern temple" has one wall intact and parts of two other walls. The "western temple" has not been fully reconstructed, but its foundation and the tumbled columns and capitals show it was a large impressive structure. On this site is a damaged bust of the Roman sun god, Helios.
