Beiteddine Palace | قصر بيت الدين from Lebanon

“Today Beiteddine, with its museums and its gardens, is one of Lebanon's major tourist attractions. The Beiteddine palace complex, Lebanon's best example of early 19th century Lebanese architecture, was built over a thirty year period by Emir Bechir El Chehab II, who ruled Mount-Lebanon for more than half a century.”
