Most individuals will not be conscious that the 3asfouriyye is an precise place. Actually, it was the primary and largest psychological hospital in Lebanon and the Center East and was known as “3asfouriyye” as a result of the unique proprietor was known as Ismail Ibrahim 3asfour and the place had a variety of greenery and birds round it. The 3asfouriyye spans over an areas of 130,000 sqm and has buildings which might be over 100 years outdated.
Sadly and similar to the whole lot else on this nation, the land was acquired by a personal firm “Solidere Worldwide” who doesn’t appear curious about turning it right into a park or preserving no matter is left of this hospital.
Right here’s an outdated image displaying the hospital. It’s kinda bizarre to seek out camels in that space.
