Market with child footprints

Perhaps the nicest part of Ain Tounga is the old market, which may also have contained some dwellings. The best here are the remains of the old infrastructure, with deep, deep well holes, and passage to underground rooms.
In front of it all stands a pitiful arch, by some described as a triumphal arch. About half the way in is a temple or church where the most fascinating part are two footprints of a child 4-5 years old. The guardian said that it was footprints of a statue, but I am not convinced.
