Byzantine Church Built over Greek Temple Discovered on Golan Heights

The dig at the site of a 1600-year-old church that was discovered in the Banias Springs preserve.

A church from the Byzantine period dating to around 400 CE was discovered in the Banias Springs Nature Reserve (a.k.a. Nahal Hermon Nature Reserve). The archeological excavations were conducted under the leadership of the Archeology Division of the Nature and Parks Authority under the direction of Prof. Adi Erlich and Ron Lavie of the Zinman Institute of Archeology at the University of Haifa.

Prof. Adi Erlich explained that “the Temple of the god Pan and the church were discovered in a topographic environment that combines a cliff, a cave, springs and a terrace created in ancient times from the collapse of part of the cliff, which is where the temples were built.
