Bhamdoun (Arabic: بحمدون), is a town in Lebanon 23 km (14 mi) from Beirut on the main road that leads to Damascus and in the suburbs of the main tourist city of Aley, lying at an altitude of 1,150 m (3,770 ft) above the Lamartine valley. Two separate villages compose the town, Bhamdoun-el-mhatta (literally meaning “Bhamdoun the station”) and Bhamdoun-el-day’aa (“Bhamdoun the village”). A railroad used to link Bhamdoun to Beirut with the train station being a prominent feature of the town for many years. The station and railroad were eventually abandoned when cars became more popular.
