View Full Version : Cedars of Lebanon

Cedars of Lebanon were used by the Phoenicians for building ships and temples. The Egyptians used its resin for mummification, and its sawdust was found in pharaohs' tombs. The Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh mentions the cedar groves of Lebanon as the dwelling of the gods. Kings far and near requested the wood for religious and civil constructs, the most famous of which are King Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem and David's and Solomon's Palaces.
