Temple of Bel in Palmyria [Test]

The Temple of Bel (Arabic: معبد بل‎‎), was an ancient temple located in Palmyra, Syria. The temple, consecrated to the Mesopotamian god Bel, worshiped at Palmyra in triad with the lunar god Aglibol and the sun god Yarhibol, formed the center of religious life in Palmyra and was dedicated in 32 CE. Its ruins were considered among the best preserved at Palmyra, until they were further destroyed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in August 2015. The arched main entrance into the temple is still intact.
