Sabeen Badr With Friends Exploring The History Of Maaloula

Sabeen Badr (in green shirt with sun glasses) belongs to Damascus. The snap was captured when she was visiting world’s most historical place Maaloula with her university fellows. Sabeen wants to share some basic information about this historical place. She tells that Maaloula, in Aramaic, means “entrance”. Maaloula is some 50 kms from Damascus. On entering Maaloula a visitor would feel engulfed in an enchanted world of magic and legends that soon overwhelms the world of reality. Houses clinging to the rocks as birds’ nests cling to lovely trees will fascinate you. There are two important monasteries in Maaloula: Mar Sarkis and Mar Taqla. Enter Mar Sarkis Monastery, and you will find yourself in the midst of history. This monastery was built in the 4th century on remains of a heathen temple, with a simple, plain appearance. It was named after St. Sarkis, one of Syrian horsemen who fell in the reign of king Maxi manus in 297. This monastery still maintains its solemn historical character.

In the end Sabeen has delivered a message to our readers that she uses Internet daily till late night. If any body taking interest to be friendship with her, he/she can contact her through our comments box.
