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.

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.

This sole pillar of the temple of Artemis of Ephesus is worth the visit. It has as a back drop both a christian temple and a mosque. Keen reminders of their appropriation of the much deeper history going back thousands of years of Kuboba, the...More

Artemis is missed by nearly everyone that visits Ephesus. I will repeat a comment I have previously seen. Visit for what it was, not what it is. Alexander the Great, Julius Caeser, me, some big names have been here. You will be greeted by 2...More

I went here on a coach tour. A lovely place to visit with lots of history, but there are much better sites to visit in a better restored condition. Glad I didn't just visit this one site as it would of been a little disappointing.

It is just a small open field with some ruins here and there. There is no museum at that place. You don't even need a ticket to enter this place. This place has ruins, 1 small stall that sells souvenir and one man selling a... More
