Kobayat, a Lebanese town located north of Lebanon, is set to inaugurate the world’s second biggest cross and Lebanon’s biggest cross on the 26th of October. The cross is 40 meters long and 20 meters wide and was made in Romania.

That means that Lebanon now has the largest cross and the second biggest cross in the world. I am not a big fan of these records but if it helps the town attract further religious tourists, then it’s a smart move. Speaking of records, we also have the biggest rosary in the world in Deir el Ahmar.

There are plenty of beautiful sites and monasteries to visit in Kobayat for those interested. If you don’t know much about this town, check out my previous posts:
