The Temple of Artemis (Artemision), Selcuk

(1/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
A single column and some stone fragments are all that's left of The Temple of Artemis (Artemision), the site of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The spot where the temple stood was recognized for its sanctity by numerous civilizations, including the Lydians, the Greeks, and the Romans. In fact, it was one of the most popular pilgrimage sites of Antiquity. Legend has it that the Amazons build the earliest temple here, as they worshipped Artemis as their chief deity. Throughout the centuries the temple was destroyed and rebuilt many times before finally being ransacked by the Goths in 268 CE; today, little remains of the original temple. Admission to the site is free. Make The Temple of Artemis (Artemision) a part of your Selcuk vacation plans using our Selcuk tour planner.

  • This site did not have much left to see. There are really aggressive salesmen that await you as you exit the bus. Only visit this site to cross off ancient wonder from your list.  more »
  • Personally, I would make a detour there for. There's not a whole lot more to see. Now you have a beautiful view and down a nice mosque with a pretty courtyard garden. This is first and foremost a pilgrimage site
