Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Monday, 2 April 2018 is Jeita.
Jeita (Arabic: جعيتا Jʿītā; also spelled Jaaita or Jaita) is a town and municipality located in the Keserwan District of the Mount Lebanon Governorate of Lebanon. The town is about 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Beirut. It has an average elevation of 380 meters above sea level and a total land area of 290 hectares. Jeita's inhabitants are Maronites.
It is well known for the Jeita Grotto which is a popular tourist attraction, as well as the Nahr al-Kalb, a river that runs from a spring near the grotto emptying into the Mediterranean Sea. The name Jeita is derived from the Aramaic word Ge’itta, meaning "roar" or "noise".
