Several of the larger temples are a bit difficult to imagine at Pompeii. Being so large, there are few decorations remaining and you essentially see (writ very large) row upon row of columns. The Temple of Isis is a smaller temple, meaning that much of it is still extant & you can put yourself in the time and place very... More

These ruins are by far better than Herculanum, if you only have the opportunity to visit one in Naples. This particular temple is in great shape, with the pedestal for the statue (long gone, unfortunately) and the sacrificial altar. It's right by the amphitheatre, so you have to wonder....Did they worship here before they watched gladiators? Yes, it's super hot,... More

It is not a large temple, but it is worth visiting it for some of the details inside, and also for its surroundings.

This temple to the Egyptian goddess Isis reflects the contact between the Roman Empire and Egypt and the polytheism of Pompeii. This small building stands in the middle of a courtyard in front of the Teatro Grande. To it's left is the purgatorium, a site for purification rites that contained water from the Nile. Make note of the sculpted details,... More

I think the Temple of Isis is one of my favorite temples in Pompeii. It is not very large but it has some nice details. It is located near the Theater,

Another temple among many of Pompeii, perhaps no the best of all this is not well preserved, all that remains is a small altar and a colonnade bearing witness to what once would have been a beautiful temple. Anyway, enjoy the stunning view all over.

At first glance, the Temple of Isis, aka Tempio d'Iside, doesn't look very special. It is quite small and was built as the sanctuary of an Egyptian cult. It is claimed to be the most complete temple in Pompeii and some of the sculptured wall decorations are exquisite. Although everything in the building and the building itself were nearly perfectly...

This Temple of egyptian goddess Isis is not large, but is very picturesque and placed near the Big Theatre of Pompeii, nr. 47 of official site map. The surviving frescoes shows a Nile landscapes as the ancient romans could imagine them. The importance of the Temple shows the fact that it was rebuilt during the short interval between the eartquake... More

The Temple of Iside is very well preserved. You can even see some of the original paint. The temple is small, very compact. I think of it as a petite temple. Because of its size, you can imagine the missing pieces of the ruin a little easier and recreate what the temple must have originally looked like. This is a... More
