Honestly, a bit disappointing

Not an awful lot to see once you are inside, so if you don't have the big combo-ticket, you may consider not going in.

It's included in the price of the cathedral ticket and it is cute and small, it would take about 15minutes.

This is a short walk from the cathedral and admission is included in the cathedral charge. Very small interior with a statue of John the Baptist and an old baptismal basin.

Usually when you encounter Greek or Roman "temples" these days, what you will usually see is a few broken columns in the grass. Even the Acropolis doesn't have a complete roof. That's what makes The Temple of Jupiter really amazing- it still has its original roof after 1700 years. It is intricately patterned with finely carved detail, giving you a... More

We stayed near this temple and walked by it on a daily basis. I would recommend having a tour guide explain the signficance of it. It's easy to walk by without paying much attention, so having the historical background will make it seem more spectacular.

Said to be built from 295 to 305AD, this little temple carries a lot of history. It was dedicated to the ancient Roman God of Jupiter and was turned into a baptistery of St.John the Baptist along the way. The sphinx in front of the temple was brought here from Egypt and the bronze statute inside the temple is that... More

If you have not noticed from my title, I love history. People can say that there is nothing to see her, well, they are wrong. There is this beautiful roman architecture, the ceiling, details on the door, the statue of saint Ivan Krstitelj (sorry, I am not sure how is he called in english), sarcophags...Do you know how difficult it...

Part of Diovletian's Palace the Temple is a must see so get a guide and do not miss learning the significance of each part of the palace.

A real Roman temple with it's original roof! Such a treat for someone who loves history. It was turned into a Baptistery by the Christians as they "de-Diocletian-ed" the town, with an ancient Croatian altar being made into the pool. The roof is strange-- faces and puckered thing, don't know if some of the faces were carved out or something.... More

Cheap in. By all means stop if you're nearby but don't go out of your way to see this. Just one little room.
