(Roman Temple 20 km)

From Chtaura take the Baalbeck road, turning left at Ablah. the Qsarnaba road is on the left and is well-marked. The temple, found at the upper part of the village, has been partly restored and is notable for the monumental staircase on the east side. This is one of the Lebanese temples which has pilasters along the external walls.
   The brightly colored minaret of the village mosque appears through the stark columns of the Roman temple in another picturesque display of modern and ancient coexistence.
