Nahle (Arabic: نحله‎‎), is a village situated 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) northeast of Baalbek in Baalbek District, Baalbek-Hermel Governorate, Lebanon.[1]

Roman temple[edit]

There are the ruins of a Roman temple in the village that are included in a group of Temples of the Beqaa Valley.[2] The temple foundations are made of gigantic blocks of stone, upon which sit the remains of a podium. The podium has a long inscription written on it that is now almost impossible to read.[1]
