General preview about Bhomray:
Bmohray contains the remains of Roman monuments and rock sarcophagi. Most probably, its first inhabitants were tradesmen engaged in the trade of cedar wood, which is still abundant in the area. Bmohray was the first village in the north to become part of the Shelter of Arz Al-Shouf. It has one million square meters of cedar trees, as well as at least three million square meters of pine trees. Before the war, the main source of income for the village was horticulture, especially apples.
