Ancient recycling the tour guide called it. What a fitting description. Over the years, much of this once amazing structure has been plundered and removed. Some with the intention to preserve and others not so much. Today a single (not even original) pillar is the...More

Not much left of the temple but everywhere in Ephesus is fascinating and there are interesting stories attached to them.

Our guide asked us to have a look from far place and it is not recommended to go near because of many insects and snakes. Well, one pillar is only remaining out of 5. Many people approach you to sell coins and souvenirs.

It is a shame the site is not better kept up, but it is still incredible to be able to say that you have visited one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Within walking distance of the otogar.

History, yes - but little to see. So you'll need not just an expert guide, but one capable of bringing the past to life if you're to get anything from what was one of the wonders of the ancient world.

If you are expecting to find a temple still then let me tell you that you won't at all, the only thing you will see here is just a column and rocks remaining from the temple, but if you are a history lover (like me)...More
