‘Ayn al Fījah
'Ayn al-Fijah, Syria
'Ayn al Fijah is one of two springs that are the source of the Barada River. The Romans built the first structure here in the first century, a temple that still exists on site. For many years the site has proven a popular leisure spot with inhabitants of Damascus and a train served the village that grew up around ‘Ayn al Fijah itself. Today the spring is inside a concrete building.
