During the Old Testament era, Caesarea Philippi was a center for worship of the pagan god, Baal. Later it became a site for the worship of fertility gods. From the 3rd-century BC to the 4th or 5th century AD, pagan worshipers at Caesarea Philippi had shrines and altars dedicated to the Greco-Roman god Pan/Faunus.
