Situated on the Beqaa plain, Anjar is the site of the only Umayyad city in Lebanon. It was built from 705 to 715 and many well conserved ruins still remain.
Surrounded by well-preserved walls, the vast city still conserves its original rectangular shape and stands between two large, perpendicular main streets serving the whole town.
You can visit the remains of the mosque as well as the partly rebuilt great palace. There, you can observe the splendid columns reflecting the traditional Umayyad architecture. Finally, the thermal baths, small palace and various shops and houses will tempt you to go for a captivating walk through antiquity.
