Lonely Planet review for Temple of Bel
The single most impressive part of the ruins and the most complete structure is this temple, also known as the Sanctuary of Bel. Although very little is known about Palmyra's deities, Bel is assumed to be the most important of the gods in the Palmyrene pantheon, the equivalent of the Greek Zeus or Roman Jupiter.
