Serjilla. Syria. Partial view through a doorway of the meeting halls front portico at the dead city of Serjilla. Dating from the fifth century, the meeting hall for men or Andron front facade is marked by a double portico with three columns. It is considered one of the most perfectly preserved buildings of all the dead towns in Syria. Located in north-western Syria, the almost complete and eerie ghost town of Serjilla is home to extensive semi intact remains from the Byzantine period. The town was abandoned after the Arab conquest in the seventh.
