This is the big one, the site everyone must see. If you come to Lebanon you have to make the effort to come here. Now it's easy to ssy, harder to do. The area is under tight control being close to the boarder with Syria....More

Some of the best preserved Roman temples are located in Baalbek. It's simply amazing. You will need 2 hours there to make the most out of it and appreciate the different areas. Governments don't recommend you going there because it's near the Syrian border. However,...More

Two amazing temples dating back to pre-Roman times. The original site may have been to the sun god. The Roman temple now has the six iconic columns standing. Currently shins scaffolding. Stand by the base of an upturned pillar to get a sense of size....More

Highly enjoyed my visit to this grand archaeological site. I didn't realise just how big the site was or how well it's been preserved. It's quite impressive and great for photos. You can wander around the site quite freely and even (respectfully) climb on top...More

The Temples of Baalbeck, Lebanon's greatest Roman treasure, can be counted among the wonders of the ancient world. The largest and most noble Roman temples ever built, they are also among the best preserved. Baalbeck is listed on the UNESCO world heritage site as well....More

When you need more details about an icon that took too many talks about Gods creations on earth you must visit Baalbek temples! Huge stones and giant columns in a very beautiful architectural way.

I was so surprised by how big the site is, you definitely need around 4-5 hours on site if you want to hire a guide (totally recommended), you can find one at the entrance and they usually speak at least 6 languages just for 20$!

The experience at the site was very good; the different temples were amazing in addition to the museum where you can find old sarcophage. The entrance fees for lebanese and Arabs is 10000 LL only and kids for free. Don't forget to take a bottle...More

Best place to learn Lebanon History! This Phoenician city, where a triad of deities was worshipped, was known as Heliopolis during the Hellenistic period.

Salaam, All! I'm trying to decide if I ought to include the Temples of Baalbek ruins in my Lebanon itinerary despite having visited a good number of ancient ruins scattered across the Mediterranean and North America in the last three years. I'm hoping some of the experienced travellers here can opine? Here are the details: I'll be in Lebanon next month, and will have time in my itinerary to visit the capital, the coastal cities from Tripoli in the north to Tyre in the south, as well as an extra day to saunter out east to visit Baalbek. However, in the last three years or so, I've visited a good number of ruin sites, and really want to diversify my travel experiences. If the legendary Temple of Baalbek site is simply another ruin site to check off a list, then perhaps it is not for me. That said, I'm well aware that every ruin site is different and it is therefore possible to have visited a good number in the recent past and still extract value and enjoyment from yet another. Would this be so in my case with a visit to Baalbek? My past three-year ruins itinerary includes some of the ancient Roman cities of Northern Algeria; some sites in Northern and Central Tunisia; a few Mayan pyramids and temples in Guatemala, Belize, and Mexico; along with the usual suspects in Rome and around. Keen to learn your thoughts on this, and thanks in advance to all those who take the time to respond. :-)

I don't think you should drive yourself in Lebanon. To go to Baalbek you have to cross several checkpoints. I felt that the situation was very unstable there. We used a great driver who is also a guide. Adel Nayfeh his... More
