Temple of Apollo, Didim

4.6
#1 of 22 in Historic Sites in Aydin Province
Walk in the shadow of imposing columns at Temple of Apollo, one of the most important sanctuaries of the ancient world. The temple sits at the site of ancient Didyma, which was, next to Delphi, the largest center of the cult of Apollo. After the destruction of the original temple in the 5th century BCE, a grand project of reconstruction was started, but never finished. Giant columns and elaborate stone reliefs allow you to imagine the magnitude of the envisioned temple. The ruins lie in the town center surrounded by a good selection of cafes and restaurants. If you're visiting on a hot day make sure to bring adequate sun protection. Arrange to visit Temple of Apollo and other attractions in Didim using our Didim travel itinerary planner.

  • We strongly recommend to roam without a guide. What if I need to read, or go on a guided tour. Didimin how much you understand that is full of history.

  • What a fantastic and amazing place Should be better preserve for further generations Bit of a tip outside the surrounding area Shop sellers very friendly and helpful Kids free not very expensive for adults Would love to go back and see again
  • A wonder piece of the past to many people miss this area ! A great work of art from bygone years . Enjoy a meal at a terrace resturant at sun set
  • Beautiful tranquil place. A must visit for everyone.
  • Didim's secret treasure! Totally under sold to tourists in my humble opinion. An amazing historical site. Recommend visiting hours outside of the midday sun as it is on a high exposed location.
