Ruins of the Roman Temple - Hibarieh

  • archaelogical site

Hibarieh, Hasbaya district

The Wadi Al Tym is a long fertile valley, in the south, laden with olive and fruit trees the local population has been cultivating throughout history. The Romans, as the Canaanites Phoenicians, believed this area to be a holy site and built many temples along its terrain. On the road to Hasbaya, the capital of this fertile southern valley, the Al-Hebbariyeh Roman Temple sits, catching the rays of the sunrise over Mount Hermon. It is one of the few ancients sites left and its design has been recognized as an Antae Temple as the Greeks and Romans defined, referring to its eastern portal that faces the mountain, Ionic style pillar, and frieze (wall decoration).
