The remaining columns at the Temple of Bacchus support a richly carved entablature, which includes an architrave with a three-banded frieze that is decorated with alternating bulls and lions and cornice ornamented with geometric and floral patterns. . . . #travel #travelphotography #instatravel #traveltheworld #explorer #worldplaces #nature #journey #trip #traveler #wanderlust #travelpics #adventure #ilovetravel #livestyle #photography #visiting #exploring #ivantogo #photooftheday #adventureculture #culture #architecture #lebanon #baalbeklebanon #baalbekruins #baalbektemple #ancientcivilization #ruins #templeofbacchus

This Phoenician city, where a triad of deities was worshipped, was known as Heliopolis during the Hellenistic period. It retained its religious function during Roman times, when the sanctuary of the Heliopolitan Jupiter attracted thousands of pilgrims. Baalbek, with its colossal structures, is one of the finest examples of Imperial Roman architecture at its apogee. In terms of architecture the greatest temples at the site are the Temples of Jupiter, Bacchus and Venus. . . . . . #baalbek #balbaak #lebanon #unescoworldheritagecentre #baalbektemple #templeofjupiter #templeofbacchus #unescoworldheritage #Beirut #baalbekruins #traveling #travel #baalbekphotography #traveltolebanon #middleeast #ig_lebanon #travelgram #travelphotography #lebanon🇱🇧 #explorelebanon #travelingtheworld #beqqavalley #beqa #romanempire

We made it to Lebanon! Evidence of the revolution everywhere (military, road closures, barb wire, etc.) but it’s completely safe in most places. I’m doing some heavy lifting at the Temple of Bacchus (Roman's god of Wine). . . . #baystreetescape #templeofbacchus #baalbekruins #torontocouple #adventurecouple #adventureseeker #TravelCoupleGoals #travelbug #goexplore #lovetotravel #travellifestyle #roamtheplanet #travelholic #nomadiclife #travelmore #wonderfulplaces #lovetotravel #travelbloggers #travelblogging #bloglife #travelcouple #traveling #travellingthroughtheworld #wonderfulplaces #nomad #travelpics #travel #vacation #travelers #travelshot

The Roman Temple of Bacchus at Baalbek. I’m amazed that it’s survived all these centuries in such good shape - hands down the most amazing ancient Roman site I’ve ever seen...and completely empty. I couldn’t help but think that if this were in Italy or Greece, it would be absolutely overrun by tourists. #nofilterneeded #templeofbacchus #baalbektemple #ancientrome #ruins #unesco #unescoworldheritage #baalbek #beqaa #lebanon #catalanspelmon #🇱🇧

I am not one to post several images at once, but today I was really impressed with what we saw in Baalbek, and it was really hard to pick one. The weather, the sun and the light helped a lot, but the temples in Baalbek are simply astonishing. So ancient and so well preserved. Geometry, gold and blue, stairs and lions, and the best company ever! #baalbek #templeofbacchus #templeofjupiter #lebanon #visitlebanon #catalanspelmon #mediterraneancountry #romanenpire #travelling #travel #picsoftheday

So much more to Lebanon than Beirut. Baalbek, the Roman ruin FKA Heliopolis, has the best combination of temples ever - dedicated to Jupiter, Bacchus, and Venus, and the tallest Corinthian columns in the world. Despite earthquakes and wars, there are many details that are amazingly preserved. Batroun was mentioned by ancient scholars back to the 14th century BC and you can see the ruins of the Phoenician wall. Byblos has been continuously occupied since 5000 BC with a mix of Phoenician, Roman, and Crusader ruins. #lebanon #whennotinrome #oldestcity #baalbek #templeofbacchus #batroun #byblos #phoenicianwall #studentofhistory #beunsettled #ancienthistory

Dedicated to Bacchus, God of Wine 🍷 One of the largest and best-preserved temples ever built by the Romans, the Temple of Bacchus now stands in rural Lebanon, only a few kilometers from the modern Lebanese-Syrian border. . . . #baalbek #templeofbacchus #romanarchitecture #romanempire #godofwine #dionysus #lebanon #lebanon🇱🇧 #bacchus #middleeast #archaeology #wine

The scale of Bacchus, and the whole of Heliopolis, for that matter, takes my breath away... #templeofbacchus #Heliopolis #baalbek #lebanon

The Temple of Bacchus is an extraordinary piece of history situated up in the mountains of Lebanon close to the Syrian border. The structure is amazingly well preserved for its age (circa 2nd century AD) and reflects the impressive architectural capabilities of the Romans. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- #lebanon2019 #lebanon #lebanon_ig #lebanese #middleeast #baalbek #templeofbacchus #temples #unescoworldheritage #historychannel #historygram #historicalplace #romanempire #romanruins #roman #travelphotography #wanderlust #photooftheday #photogrid #photographylife #digitalnomad #awesome_earth #architecture #amazingplaces #amazingsights #globalprojects
