Anyone will note easily two churches in these huge mass, the eastern chruch which dates back to 546 A.D., a columned basilica of six bays. Its western door resembles the famous architect Kyros's doorways. The western facade and narthex have survived intactly, but the rest are in ruins. The other church, the western, is probably one of within monastic complex, surviving only the eastern wall.
On the southern edge, there is a temple of Roman origin, dated to 161 A.D. The temple is dedicated to Zeus Bombos, but probably the site was a semitic cult center. The temple is preserved well.
Bakirha (Baqirha) is a beautiful picnic site with sweeping landscape, overlooking Amuq plain on the west.
