The Beirut river forms the boundary between the Christian and Armenian areas.

It runs East to West and a legend recounts that Saint George slew the dragon at the mouth of the river. 

The upper valley is one of the most important bird migration area but once it reaches the capital, it becomes laden by sewage and pollution from the slaughterhouses along its banks.

The Forum Conference Centre was built on the site of the Karantina Massacre, which occurred in January 1976. Muslims, Kurds and Syrians inhabited this slum district. Although this massacre occurred well before any of these youths were born, it remains as one of the most traumatic event of the civil war in collective memory.
