"Baniyas Stream and Waterfall" Baniyas by Bregman

Baniyas Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 39 photos

The Baniyas is a popular place, mainly beacuase of the waterfall which is only a 2 minutes walk from the entrance. If you want to see some more, you can go in by the other gate and hike along the stream. Its' quite an easy hike and there are some sites along the way.

Near the second entrance (the one closer to the Golan heights), there are the ruins of a Greek temple. This place was dedicated to the god Pan. It was called Paniyas in Hebrew 2000 years ago. As the Arab cannot pronounce "p" the name was distorted to Baniyas.

See more of the Baniyas stream and Baniyas waterfall in the travelogues.
