Syria Things to Do: 414 reviews and 569 photos
The monuments of Palmyra are wonderful. You will spend hours gazing at their pillars and pediments, the stone blocks of their walls and courts. You'll walk through great doorways and arches and look up in awe at high roofs and tall columns. But look closely too, and lie on your back to see wonderful carvings, hidden from view on the underside of fallen lintels in the Temple of Bel. Camels and horses, fruits and flowers, angels and men are all there in beautiful detail, sometimes a little weathered and worn but often as crisp and as clear ans the day they were carved.
