This temple, this place of worship that, despite its destruction, irradiates a mystical aura, lets our imagination rebuild what it must have been on its glory days. Its one and only column reflects the grandiosity that only a temple to a godess could have, that's...More

The Temple of Artemis was located near the ancient city of Ephesus. Today, the temple can only see remains of the place where the temple once stood. Today this location is semi swampy landscape, as it was once in that place any more and the...More

Not a place to spend your time. In its day it was one of the wonders of the ancient world. Today it's basically a single pillar in a field. I'd spend time elsewhere. If you're on a guided tour of Ephesus, including the museum, it...More

Walking around there is just amazing how is conservated and the importance of this area on that time.

The history is significant but don’t be fooled...this temple is really only one restored pylon and is not really worth the drive. You can see it from afar from the Basilica of St John

Having been a Wonder of the Ancient World is a powerful punchline for this place. However, there is nothing really left. Of course, it feels like an inspiring place but going there is just utterly disappointing. The place is marked by a single column constructed...More

What a great beginning to the rest of this area if you start here. Although mostly in ruins now, it was great to see where the statutes in the Museum had come from.

Unfortunately, there is not much left of the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus - a single column framed by fragments, but the spirit of one of the seven miracles of antiquity is worthwhile to feel.

It’s very sad that from such a great and ancient construction nowadays left only one pillar and few stones. Still it worth to see! This wonder reminds us of what was long time before, the history itself. Planning to visit again for rethinking my feelings.

This is actually one of the wonders of the ancient world. However. There is nothing left there except for one pillar. Our guide told us that the oldest version of the temple dates back to the bronze age. After all the possible destruction it was...More

An ancient temple with roots dating back as far as the Bronze age. This site has held special significance to the religious for over 2 millennia and to see a building which still partial stands despite destruction by flood in the 700’s is awe inspiring.
