Monumentum Ancyranum, Ankara Overview

One of the most important Roman period ruins in Ankara, the Monumentum Ancyranum or the Temple of Augustus and Rome, is home to the “Deeds of the Divine Augustus” (Res Gestae Divi Augusti), the autobiography of the first Roman Emperor. Unfortunately, the temple can be viewed from the outside as it is in danger of collapse due to several climatic factors, including air pollution and earthquakes, and is not accessible to visitors for sightseeing.

The Greek and Latin inscriptions preserved on the walls of the temple that describe Augustus’ achievements are the primary surviving source of the text as the original in Rome had disappeared. It was closed in 2016 for an indefinite period to carry out preservation work and thorough renovation. The temple, also on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage, was built between 25 B-20 BC after the Roman Empire captured Central Anatolia.
