Dahr El Maghara

Place: Dahr El Maghara

Distance from Beirut: 20 km

also spelled Dahr El Mghara or Dahr Al Magharah is a small Lebanese Christian village that is located about 20 km south of Beirut in the Chouf region of Mount Lebanon.

The village is mainly home to the Dagher family, although new construction around the area has led to numerous other families calling the village home. The village felt the wrath of the Lebanese Civil War (1975–1990) which led half the population to migrate to Australia, Canada and other areas of Lebanon.
