The Temple of Artemis, Kusadasi Overview

The famous temple of Artemis, also known as the Artemisium, is one of the seven wonders and the largest temple of the ancient world. It is a few minutes from Kusadasi and is located on a hilltop within the Hellenistic city of Ephesus, modern-day Turkey. All that remains of the majestic temple is a column and a few scattered blocks. Several statues of the goddess and amazon warriors were in the temple, some of which are displayed in the Ephesus Archaeological museum.

The temple was destroyed and rebuilt at several stages throughout history due to flooding, wars, or fires. Dedicated to the Greek goddess Artemis, it was built in the 6th century BCE. It was an architectural marvel with 127 columns, each 60 ft high. Other sites within Ephesus, such as the library of Celsus, Basilica of Saint John, Ayasuluk Fortress, and more can be visited.
