Behdidat, Jbeil district

Bahdidat, is a small village located at 550m above sea level north of Byblos (Jbeil) in northern Lebanon. Here, an old rectangular Maronite chapel dedicated to St. Theodore contains beautiful murals. The apse, a part of a church that is shaped like a half circle, is covered over the entire height of the wall, which tells the story of salvation in two stages according to the Old and New Testament. The relative part to the Old Testament occupies the bow hanger, while the lower arch and apse depict scenes from the New Testament.
