This village was a popular destination since the times of the Phoenicians and later the Romans. It is home to ancient ruins.

The historic Maronite monastery of Saint John the Baptist, also known as Deir El Qalaa, was built in 1750.

It was built on the remains of the temple of Baal Markadi which was a Phoenician god.

The temple once matched the grandeur of Baalbek’s temples.
