Approximately 86 kilometers northeast of the city of Beirut in eastern Lebanon stands the temple complex of Baalbek. the ruins are one of the most extraordinary and enigmatic holy places of ancient times. Long before the Romans conquered the site and built their enormous temple of Jupiter, long even before the Phoenicians constructed a temple to the god Baal, there stood at Baalbek the largest stone block construction found in the entire world. The origin of the name Baalbek is not precisely known. The Phoenician term Baal (in Hebrew) simply means ‘lord’ or ‘god’. The word Baalbek may mean 'God of the Bekaa valley' (the local area) or ‘God of the Town’, depending on different interpretations of the word. According to theories stated by the mainstream archaeological community, the history of Baalbek reaches back approximately 5000 years.
