In the hills above Bcharre can be found a large stone obelisk thought to date back to Phoenician time.

The tomb is a pyramid structure, built with stone and mud. It includes 4 burial chambers. The pyramid is hollowed out on the inside allowing for the smoke of the incense to guide the spirit on its journey to the gods.

The location was chosen due to the calcareous rocky nature of the mountains which allowed the bodies to be preserved longer. Within the four burial chambers, there are groves on which the sarcophagi are placed and pushed to the inside like drawers.
