The nymphaeum is an arched watercourse built of large stones that has been constructed 4 metres (13 ft) deep into a hill. It leads to a cistern underground. A gulley has formed at the outflow, where a boundary pillar is carved with the image of a goddess. It resembles a similar cippus at Kafr Zabad.
The numerous springs of the region explain human settlement there and the development of the flowing water goddess cult. Hadad and Atargatis were water cult's God and Goddess, they were particularly worshipped during the Roman period. The nymphaeum is built over a spouting spring.
