Temnin el-Foka is a nymphaeum in Lebanon.[1] It is close to the spring of Ain el-Jobb.[2]

The nymphaeum is an arched watercourse built of large stones that has been constructed 4 metres (13 ft) deep into a hill. It leads to a cistern underground. A gulley has formed at the outflow, where a boundary pillar is carved with the image of a goddess. It resembles a similar cippus at Kafr Zabad.[2]
