History

The city of Aanjar, and notably its palace and mosque, are thought to have been built by Caliph Walid I during the first Arab Conquest (660-750 AD). Located in the Beqaa Valley, Aanjar served as a strategic commercial center between the coast and the interior during this period. The ruins were only discovered by accident in the 1940s, but they are very important, because they are the only known ruins from this time period. The site is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
