Beit Mery

Beit Mery (Arabic: بيت مري‎) is a Lebanese town overlooking the capital Beirut. The town has been a summer mountain resort since the times of the Phoenicians and later the Romans. The name derives from Aramaic and it means "The house of my Lord or Master". On one of the 3 hills of Beit Mery (Southern end of town) along the Lebanon Western mountain range are the ruins of the old Phoenician and Roman temples that were erected in the same general area in what is now known as Deir El-kalaa. At present a Christian church and monastery sit on top of parts of the old Roman temple. Beit Mery is home to a Lebanese Red Cross First Aid Center.
