Much of the temple has been reused in surrounding buildings so there is not a lot left to see. If you are visiting Ephasus then you might as well pop along to see the solitary... read more

This was one of the Seven Wonders of the World but at the site you will not see a lot. A pillar has been reconstructed just to mark the place. However it's very near Ephesus and Selcuk town so definitely worth a quick stop.

If you're really interested in history and know the back history this may be worth a look, but all of the major pieces are sitting in offsite museums and the temple site is little more than foundations. Of minor interest.

If you came here expecting those pictures of white volume you saw on the internet, boy you're going to be so disappointed.. What was left of the ruins are 1 column. I kid you not. And it's only a matter of time before even that column gone. What's sad is that it's not because of nature, but rather because man... More

In spite of there not being much to see here, I feel that it is worth visiting as it is one of the wonders of the ancient world and only one of two remaining.

Much of the temple has been reused in surrounding buildings so there is not a lot left to see. If you are visiting Ephasus then you might as well pop along to see the solitary reassembled column, which is half the original height, as it is close by.

This place is of some interest if your into archeology, it's a shame there's not much to see. However follow the road up a short while and you will find the ruins of the church of st John

There is not much left, only the outline of the foundations but it probably used to dominate the landscape.

As far as I know, you cannot actually visit this temple. Someone correct me if I am wrong. I understand it is on private land. There is not much there other than one column, yet this was a massive structure in its time. It is located not far from the Ancient City of Ephesus and you can get glimpses of... More
