Very nice but small site! There are some explanations about the history of the ruins and the temple. I was during the preparations of the kfardebian festival! A very scenic view for shows!

They are not as impressive as Baalback, but still quite interesting. The area around the temple itself is gorgeous with mountains and valleys. We took some great pictures. It cost very little to visit the ruins do I highly recommend it.

These fantastic ancient Roman ruins are a reminder of not only how old the Lebanon region is but how much history there is to see and experience. These ruins are currently under partial restoration but are still worth visiting. We visited during a snow storm...More

Considerably poor ruins. Just some badly restored columns in the middle of no where. Not expensive to visit but not worth a special visit.
