Owner description: This well preserved building is located in the city center on Curettes Road. The elegant workmanship and carvings on the front walls of the building make it one of the most attractive in the city.

The Temple of Hadrian was great break from the mostly poor/partial reconstruction of many Ephesus points of interest. The Temple of Hadrian appears to be an accurate representation of what the front of the temple would have looked like when in use. The carvings are beautiful and I recommend taking extra time here to look at the detail. Make sure to get pictures of the Medusa carving- it is great. The detail on the arch is amazing and the friezes of almost three-dimensional people are great as well. This is second only to the Celsus Library.

The Temple was under repair and you weren't able to see much of it for the tarps and workers. The guides to tell of the history somewhat but was bummed that I couldn't see more of it.

Beautiful arch and interesting reliefs of Medusa are the main attraction of this temple. We were told the belief was that with the head of Medusa on the porch it would protect the city from its enemies.

Another of all those remains in Ehpesos that makes you awe in wonder. It is not a large building, like some other, but still fantastic that it is still there.

In moy opinion it is worth a stop and a photo on your way to the more magnificent buildings of Ephesos - in any other city it would be an eye-opener on its own.
