    Description:

    A Christian basilica was eventually constructed in the rectangular court of the Temple of Jupiter, either in the time of Theodosios II (reigned AD 408-450) or in the 6th century AD.

    The Sanctuary of Jupiter Heliopolitanus contains the vast Temple of Jupiter at its western end. The buildings appear to have been planned and begun soon after the foundation of the Roman colony ca. 16 BCE. The oldest building in the complex is the Temple of Jupiter, which was standing almost to capital height by …

    Description:

    Byblos (the ancient Greek name; modern name is Jubayl) is believed by many to be the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. Under the name of Gibelet or Giblet, it was an important military base in the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem in the 11th and 12th century, and the remains of its crusader castle are among the most impressive architectural structures now visible at its center. The town was taken by Saladin in 1187, re-taken by the Crusaders, and eventually conquered by Baybars I …

The buildings appear to have been planned and begun soon after the foundation of the Roman colony ca. 16 BCE. The oldest building in the complex is the Temple of Jupiter, which was standing almost to capital height by AD 60, as a graffito found on one of the topmost column drums shows. Enlargements and embellishments, including the construction of elaborate approaches to the temple, were carried ou…

    Description:

    A small mosque near the old crusader castle. It still looks very similar in modern photographs, with a distinctive single minaret and courtyard. Prince Youssef Chehab [(Youssef Shahabi (1763–1788)] of Lebanon captured the city ca. 1780; the mosque is named for him. He also returned the Church of St. John to the Maronites. The city was ruled as an emirate within the Ottoman Empire by the Maan and Chehab dynasties.

    Description:

    In 16 BCE Baalbek became a Roman colony with the name Colonia Julia Augusta Felix Heliopolitana. The ‘Temple of Bacchus’, largely built in the 2nd century AD, lies parallel to the Temple of Jupiter but is set in a separate courtyard. It is a smaller structure (66 x 35 m), although still roughly the size of the Parthenon. Like the Temple of Jupiter, it is in the Corinthian order, with 8 columns along the front and rear and 15 down the sides; the columns are again of local limestone wit…

    Description:

    The small ‘Temple of Venus’ (3rd century AD) has a circular cella surrounded by Corinthian columns and is entered through a tetrastyle porch of two rows of columns, approached up a flight of steps. Both the entablature around the back of the cella and the podium on which the columns stand are constructed in a series of concave curves, a baroque design unparalleled in surviving ancient monuments.
