The Shalout Fountain
The Shalout Fountain


The Shalout Fountain.  The water in this fountain comes from the main source in DeirElQamar which also feeds the circular water basin in Dany Chamoun Square (the Midane).

Legend has it that there was once a shepherd who had a dog called Shalout whose muzzle and paws were always covered in mud although they were in summer and the land was parched. Surprised and intrigued, the shepherd followed his dog and found him lapping water from a hole he had obviously dug. The shepherd decided to dig further and found a source of pure water gushing out. He then gave the source the name of his dog.
