Qanet Bekish lies in Mount Lebanon, 1800 meters above sea level. As of September 13th, it is home to a 73.8 meter-Cross, that is lit up with 1,800 spotlights
Building the cross took about two years and cost some $1.5 million, which mainly came from donations from the Maronite Church and a French Catholic group. The cross stands near a church that dates to 1898.
For some reason some people think it is cool to engrave your name or political affiliation logos into everything monumental in this country... I think it is best that everything stays buried until we evolve into a civilized nation and we understand the value of every monument we are blessed with. For now we do not deserve any of those historical legacies. Tfou 3layna! W be kell me3na el kelmeh!
