Hajar Al Hibla, meaning “the Stone of the Pregnant Woman”, is a huge cut stone block you can find in the quarry not too far from the Baalbek Temple, which it was meant for.

This attraction won’t take more of your time than is needed to cast a glimpse at the massive stone monolith still lying unutilised in the quarry and to wonder about the engineering ideas that allowed bringing such sizeable blocks to the construction site of the Baal Temple.

Entrance (as of May 13) was free of charge, and it was possible to wander around the entire quarry, which isn’t large, and to climb the stone blocs. Makes nice quick addition to the overwhelming experience of exploring the Temple of Baalbek.
