The temple contained a cella (inner sanctuary) in which stood a large monumental obelisk dedicated to the Egyptian god of war, Resheph. Other smaller obelisks that still stand to this day dotted the temple’s courtyard, each of which is thought to have been erected by a pious person wanting to eternalize his presence near the deity.
Upon the excavation of this temple, archaeologists found treasures of offerings to the gods. Those artifacts are now mostly on display at the National Museum in Beirut. Note that this temple was moved to its current location by archaeologists to allow them to excavate further below. The Temple of the Obelisks was in fact originally built over a predecessor, the L-shaped temple also dedicated to Resheph.
