Dibsi Faraj was one of a number of archaeological sites in the Euphrates valley excavated in advance of its flooding by the waters formed behind the Tabqa Dam ( Lake Assad ). Excavations in 1972-74 showed that the site was occupied between the first and tenth centuries, spanning the Roman, Byzantine and Early Islamic eras.
Seen here is part of the 5th century extramural baths complex located outside the north-east gate of the Citadel.
