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

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...

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
