Olonnades of the Temple of Bel

Palmyra. Syria. View of the north-western corner internal colonnades of the Temple of Bel. Dedicated to Bel who is thought to be the supreme God of the Palmyrene pantheon, the Temple is an enormous complex and its main construction was performed over several stages from the Hellenistic through to the Roman periods. Palmyra prospered in ancient times as a caravan staging post due to its location on one of the main ancient routes from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates and to markets further east including those on the Silk Route. Palmyra is a UNSECO World Heritage Site
