Baalbek is the most spectacular archaeological site in Lebanon, located in the fertile Bekaa valley more than 80 kilometers northeast of Beirut, and in the north is Syria. Due to the riots in Syria all year round, there are also cities where urban refugees flee.
The Baalbek Temple was listed on the World Heritage List in 1984 and is one of the most amazing and mysterious holy places in ancient times. Around 2000 BC, Baalbek became an important pilgrimage site in the ancient world. The Phoenicians began to build a temple to worship the sun god. The Romans built a temple here in the first century BC. Construction was carried out with 20,000 slaves.
The weight of these temples is more than 100 tons. Whether it is ordinary people, today's archaeologists, scientists and historians are confused,
Where do these heavy stones come from?
How do those freehand people move the stone to this?
Why is the pillar of the temple so much larger than other areas?
Things that seem impossible. The Romans were built little by little. If there is a miracle in the world, it must be like this.
When I stood at the foot of Bale Baker's best-preserved Bacchus temple, I looked up at the temple. Every picture was able to make people cry: "Wow, it's amazing!"
Its four walls and pillars did not receive a large ruin. The thin lips were finished. The top of the stone pillar was engraved with a lion's head, and the walls were vividly engraved with grapes and ancient totems. Walking in from the gate of the Temple of Dionysus, it seems that he was drowned in this hall.
A lot of ruins have been visited, the Ephesus of Turkey, the Persepolis of Iran came to feel less than the ones of Baalbek. The site is so shocking that I can hardly sum up the language with an exact word, but as long as I am a tourist who travels to Lebanon, I will strongly recommend this place. I tried to imagine the scene of a 19-meter-high, 2.3-meter-diameter porch column built by human power alone. Every detail made me goose bumps.

I also built a temple here and built it with 20,000 slaves. When I came here, I was shocked by the grandeur of the Roman architecture for the first time. Human beings shuttled between temples like ants.
