Description - وصف
Between the pages of a history told by the rocks of the Temple of Eshmun and a green natural robe studded with lacquer beads, worldly and tender, flowing with the roar of the waters of the Alman River, which passes near it, the town of Baqsta extends with its ancient and modern wings to embody with its people and residents a story of civilizations, construction and one life...
Its hills overlooking the city of Sidon almost carry a message of love and life. From the rising of the sun - Jezzine to its setting in the Sea of Sidon or between them and between them, the sound of the bells of her church converges with the sound of the call to prayer of the mosque of Hajjah Hind Hijazi, next to the shrine of the great companion Sharhabeel bin Hasna, to cross together from the coexistence in the most wonderful form.
Since assuming his duties as the youngest mayor in Lebanon, the young Ibrahim - Mezher set his sights on highlighting the strengths and beauty of his town, so he focused on developing its facilities in its old and modern plot, preserving its Christian-Islamic population fabric.
He paid attention to the ancient streets that cut through the orchards of Al-Aki Dunya, and the fascinating historical and tourist attraction, the Temple of Ashmoun. His interest was equal to the town, both urban and real estate, based on its lungs with which it breathed in the farmhouse with its old houses, lush orchards and roads, and the area of Al-Sharhabeel, which became a destination for hundreds of investors. Modern buildings inhabited by the people of the Sub district and characterized by its wide and well-organised streets, from Martyr Rafic Hariri Street to the street leading to Dar al-Salaam Hospital to the street surrounding Hussam al-Din al-Hariri High School of the Makassed Islamic Charitable Association.
Mezher continues to achieve his aspirations for her beloved town, also putting before him future projects to advance and develop it, including the establishment of tourist hotels, taking advantage of its geographical and natural location, its embracing role for all the people of the region, and its continuous services to develop with the efforts of the municipality in cooperation with its active civil society.
