a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!


Temple of Venus
November 8

Dating from the 3rd Century A.D., this temple at Baalbek is among the most unusual Roman works of architecture ever constructed. Built for Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, the temple is a rather small, circular form situated adjacent to an acropolis containing the largest temple of the time, the Temple of Jupiter. Also near the Temple of Venus are the remains of the 'Temple of Muses' from the 1st Century A.D.
