Baalbek houses a Mamluk-era cemetery, locally known as Qubbat Al Sa'idayn.
The Qubba was built during the reign of Mamluk Sultan “Al-Malik An-Nasir Faraj”, to be a burial ground for the Sultanate’s representatives in Baalbek.
It is a rectangular shaped-two-room mausoleum which walls and dome collapsed over time due to neglect. The main entrance is decorated with arabesque reliefs, and its door holds a plaque bearing an inscription stating that the Qubba was erected in 812AH/1410AC, above the tombs of two Mamluk officials of the followers of el-Zaher Barquq (the first Sultan of the Mamluk Burji dynasty of Egypt)
