The Sfireh Temple, one of the largest of its kind in Lebanon, was... (Es Sfîre, Liban-Nord, Lebanon)


The Sfireh Temple, one of the largest of its kind in Lebanon, was constructed in the second century A.D. during the reign of the Roman Emperor Septimius Severus, who is believed to have lived there for four years. After several phonetic adaptations from Severus to Sfeirus, the temple became commonly known as Sfireh. Measuring 30m by 15m, the rectangular shaped temple is almost completely intact, with the exception of the roof.
The facade has three main doors, the middle one being the largest and the only door that is decorated. The door to the left leads to the terraces of the temple, while the right one leads to a crypt. Visitors will notice ancient Greek writing on parts of the rock.
“Septimius Severus was one of Roman Phoenician Emperors”
