Temple of Eshmun

The Eshmun Temple was constructed around the 7th Century BC and is located north of the city of Sidon near the Awali River. It was a dedication to the Phoenician God of Healing, Eshmun. Every Phoenician city-state enjoyed the worship of their own gods and Eshmun was one of the preferred gods of Sidon during its Golden age (5th and 6th Centuries BC). Further additions were made to the Temple in the coming years and it stood as a sacred sanctuary and house of pilgrimage until well into the beginning centuries Anno Domani (AD).
