Aarsal

Arsal (additionally spelled Aarsal, Ersal or ‘Irsal; Arabic: عرسال‎), is a town and region arranged east of Labweh, 124 kilometers (77 mi) upper east of Beirut, in Baalbek District of Baalbek-Hermel Governorate, Lebanon. The populace is prevalently Sunni Muslim.

It is a conventional town arranged on the slants of the Anti-Lebanon mountains. It is known for its nearby hand-made floor covering industry. The region is known to be one of only a handful of scarcely any spots in the Anti-Lebanon with decent water gracefully. The Lebanese Ministry of Tourism leaflet proposes that the name Arsal or Ersal signifies “God’s Throne” in Aramaic. It archives a few stone cut seats (mastabas) in the town, various authentic landmarks in the close-by slopes, and an old braced structure in the close by Wadi Al-Toun of obscure date.
