Perhaps one of my least favourite things in Ephesus. I could be wrong, but the reconstruction of this looks a bit wonky. I am not a fan of when old and new construction materiel are mixed together. That said, still a nice bit of history...More

Part of the ancient Ephesus tour. Located on the right hand side as you walk down the old street. The carvings are very ornate and it leaves you wondering how this place looked in all it's glory. There are lots of plaques to read as...More

Every where you turn, you see great things in Ephesus. Not a Fountain, but more like a temple, it may have had water running into the pool in front of it that then continued on down the hill to the latrines!

Constructed between 102 and 114 AD in honor of Artemis of Ephesos & Emperor Trajan. Two story walls surrounded the facade on three sides with a statue of Trajan on the globe in the middle over the water outlet. A pretty impressive structure.

Trajan was a world conqueror. To honor him with a statue in a large pool would have been an ostentatious display of Roman dominance and engineering. It seems simple to us today, but to surrounding peoples for whom water supply would have been intermittent, it...More
