Syria Tourism, Syria Tourist Attraction - Palmyra
Palmyra's ruins date from the 2nd century AD, although the city began its rise to glory under the Assyrians. The Temple of Bel is a massive square courtyard. Across the road is the Great Colonnade, an impressive column-lined street that was once the main artery of the town. The monumental arch that stands at one end of it has been restored. To the south of the colonnade, the theatre incorporates a market place and a banqueting hall. On the hill, overlooking Palmyra is Qala'at ibn Maan, a 17th-century Arab castle, built by the Lebanese warlord Fakhreddine. The museum has some excellent pieces from Palmyra.
