Ever felt like an ant?

I took this photo at The #Temple of #Bacchus also known as the sanctuary of #Atargatis with its 69m length and 36m width and its 18.2m high columns makes you feel like an ant when you walk through its entrance. There is no antique temple of this size anywhere else in the world that is so well preserved. Atargatis was the second diety of the Phoenician pantheon, and formed a couple with Baal. She was the mother of the gods and represented female fecundity, sexual desire and war, with her vine, her crescent and her lions. There is no evidence that this temple was converted in to a church, as may be found elsewhere in the Levant.
