Favorite thing: Walking between the ruins you can't hardly imagine, how the temple complex really had looked like in the former days.
Only the Bacchus Temple has survived earthquakes, damages by wars and vandalism. So I liked to have found a drawing of a reconstruction of the complex.
After enlarging the picture you can see very clear at the right side the stairs to the propylaea and the propylaea, in the middle the Great Court, at top the Jupiter Temple and at the left the Bacchus Temple.
Favorite thing: At the entrance of the tempelcomplex of Baalbeck is a map available. It makes it easy to find your way and to recognise the different parts of the complex.
On the map you see very well the sexagonal first court and the Great Court leading to the great Jupiter Tempel.
And also you can see how large the temple of Jupiter must have been in comparision with the Bacchus temple at the left side of the map.
