Bziza Temple

El Koura District

· Northern Lebanon

The elegant and well preserved Roman temple of Bziza, which was built around the 2nd century AD, is located in Bziza village, North of Lebanon.

The temple follows the Ionic building order, and was probably dedicated to Azizos, a personification of the morning star in the Canaanite mythology.

The temple was later on converted into a church in the early Byzantine age.
