    Built to celebrate the cult of the Emperor
    The Temple of Augustus is one of the buildings located in the old forum – a traffic free square. Built between 2 BC and 14 AD to celebrate the cult of the emperor – dedicated to Augustus Caesar. It is a splendid example of Roman architecture, built on simple lines, with an imposing façade of high Corinthian columns with beautifully carved capitals. Inside permanent exhibition of the best of Pula’s Roman finds – we did not go inside just peeked in. This well preserved temple was hit by a bomb in 1944 and completely destroyed. After the war, the allied occupiers rebuilt it – you can see the patchwork repair job. Definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately, quite a few people sit on the stairs and we had to maneuver around them – my husband waited for a while to get a clear picture of the temple.

    Great monument
    The temple is quite impressive and is in the square called Forum trg. However while looking from the door, I thought the exhbition is quite small hence why I did not purchase an entry ticket. Advice to go during the day because during night many people were sitting on the steps in front of the temple so blocking the view.

    Worth visiting if you're already in town
    Another site that I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to see, but if you're already in Pula, then it's definitely a place to visit. Historically, and architecturally its a really interesting site. Built between 2 BC and 14 AD, it's one of the oldest structures that I have personally even seen. That being said though, apparently it was destroyed by a bomb in WWII and reconstructed, so I'm not sure how much of it is still original. Still, an important site to see if you're visiting Pula to see history.

A definite must visit if you are in Pula, amazing artefacts and sculptures inside and so much history. It’s only small and there is a tiny charge to enter but we’ll worth it.

Very nice and well kept. Sadly many people sit on the stairs, so you need to manoeuvre around them. You need to pay to take a look inside, what you shouldnt do, because it is not worth it.

Beautiful temple, but a very brief visit is all that's necessary to cover the exhibit. Recommend a quick stop if you have the time!

You have to question how something so ancient still remains intact & remarkable to look at. Easily on a par with anything you'd see in Italy. Such a shame the other 2 temples did not survive.

We did not go in, but the building is really impressive and right on the main path, so definitely worth stopping by. One of those things you need to see when walking around Pula.

This was one of our last places to visit during the tour of the city.
It is on the forum and a nice place to have lunch.
