85 km north east of Beirut, is Lebanon's greatest Roman treasure, which can be counted among the wonders of the ancient world.
Baalbeck is the embodiment of the superlative. It is one of the world's greatest historical and best preserved Roman sites; the most gigantic, largest and most noble complex of Roman temples ever built, its columns are the taller ever erected, its stones are the largest ever used.
Towering high above the Beqaa plain, its monumental proportions proclaimed the power and wealth of Imperial Rome. Gods worshipped here, in its Acropolis which was constructed between the 1st and 3rd centuries, the Triad of Jupiter, Venus and Bacchus (Mercury), were grafted onto the indigenous deities of Hadad, Atargatis and a young male god of fertility.
Local influences are also seen in the planning and layout of the temples, which vary from the classic Roman design.
In Jupiter Temple, only six of the 54 giant columns that originally surrounded the sanctuary survives today. The temple has an impressive podium and a vast rectangular courtyard where sacrifices were carried out. The sanctuary is reached through a Propylaea (monumental entrance) and hexagonal forecourt.
The town of Baalbeck has major remains from Islam times including the Grand Mosque built by Umayyad Caliphs with material borrowed from ancient monuments, and another mosque built in Mamluks time near the spring of Ras El-Ayn.
Over the centuries Baalbeck's monuments suffered from theft, war and earthquakes, as well as from numerous medieval additions. Fortunately, the modern visitor can see the site in something close to its original form thanks to work in the past hundred years by German, French and Lebanese archaeologists.

I researched 'antichrist' and 'antichrists' and located here: everyone could be an antichrist: 1Jo 2:22 who's a liar yet he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? he's antichrist, that denieth the daddy and the Son. they arrive from interior Christianity: 1Jo 2:18 little young ones, that's the final time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; wherein all of us be attentive to that it is the final time. 1Jo 2:19 They went out from us, yet they weren't human beings: for if that they were human beings, they could little question have endured with us: yet they went out, that they could be made show up that they weren't genuinely anybody. the thank you to perceive antichrist: 1Jo 4:3 and each spirit that confesseth no longer that Jesus Christ is come interior the flesh isn't of God: and that's that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it is going to come; or perhaps now already is it interior the worldwide. 2Jo a million:7 for many deceivers are entered into the worldwide, who confess no longer that Jesus Christ is come interior the flesh. this is a deceiver and an antichrist. the in basic terms precise antichrist = devil (the dragon) as he will declare to be Christ, substitute God's regulation much extra, and insist allegiance, he will have his fake prophet as John the Baptist's counterpart, and the three unclean spirits, and the beast (head non secular ruler of the worldwide). Rev sixteen:13 and that i observed 3 unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the fake prophet. Rev sixteen:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which bypass forth unto the kings of the earth and of the entire worldwide, to assemble them to the conflict of that super day of God Almighty.
