This is a small temple that started as the Temple of Jupiter but is now dedicated to John the Baptist it has a large bronze of him opposite the entrance, there is an entrance fee (15 kuna I believe do not quote me). It was part of out tour so we visited it.

A popular tourist spot, a charge is made to enter and no photographs are allowed inside, unless you are clever. History everywhere, but glad we made it here.

The simplicity of the temple's structure is enhanced by the intricacy of the carving. These include the ones at the entrance, the ceiling and the baptismal pool and grand statue in the centre. My personal favorite was the work of the four sides of the baptismal pool.

Saved over the Millenia by the fact that it is was a church with the most outstanding part being the original Roman ceiling. Built as a temple, no expense was spared and it is a reminder today of what was achieved.

My wife and I bought a combo ticket which included Temple of Jupiter. It was kind of underwhelming and proved to be a fast thing to do. If you had to pay for this alone it would have been worse.

Takes ages to find and will take you about a minute to visit. May as well do it if you have bought the ticket covering the palace/cathedral/bell tower.

When in Split, you must visit the temple of Jupiter, built by the Romans to honor the king of the gods. It is in marvelous shape.

Good place . In city center. The king changed his name as son of Jupiter. He built this Jupiter temple for worship

An interesting example of roman temple construction. Small but the ceiling is amazing. The exterior has some lovely accents
