'Ayn al-Fijah
Syria
A small town about 25 km/15 miles from Damascus that grew up around the Ayn el-Fijah Springs. Along with the Barada Springs, it is the source of the Barada River that runs through Damascus. A Roman temple at the source was built in the 1st century. The park around the source is a leisure spot for the residents of Damascus and its environs, and was historically accessible by train.
