Mghayreh extends up to the plateau of Serghol . It is remarkable for the verdure of its landscapes, the abundance of its sources of water and the mildness of its climate. The source of water called 'Nabbeh Abou-salhab' is one of the most known spots in the village where inhabitants and visitors gather to fill water and meet. The source is used for irrigation along with drilling-wells in the village. Mghayreh is known for its 2nd century CE Roman temple built around 700 AD. It is called Deir el- Azra or the blue convent. It has been wrongly cited as a temple that belongs to Yanouh village situated on the east side of Mghayreh and also known as lower Mghayreh. (.
