Anjar is a unique site in
Lebanon. Found in the Bekaa Valley east of Beirut, it stands
as one of the very few vestiges we have from the Ummeyad period.
It was only discovered some five decades ago and the excavations
yielded the skeleton of the town that existed there in the 8th
century A.D with its streets, palaces, baths and some 600 shops
that have been the backbone of the economical activity of
this little town. The site offers a beautiful view of the valley
surrounding it and the mountains of Mount Lebanon facing it.
