Taldou District (Arabic: منطقة تلدو‎, romanizedmanṭiqat Taldou) is a district of the Homs Governorate in central Syria. Administrative centre is the town of Taldou.[2] The Northwestern Quadrant of the District is within Wadi al-Nasara, an Antiochian Greek Orthodox population region and cultural area. Krak Des Chevaliers, a famous Crusader Castle, is in the northwestern-most edge of the district.
