What you see in the photos is all there is. Not really worthy of it's own entry here but if you tour Ephesus, you will see it. Wikipedia will tell you all you need to know.

IT is a nice façade, but no real temple behind it. Something one passes along the street. Good for a look.

The citizens of Ephesus must have been canny as the temple to Hadrian, built politically for his visit, was repurposed from a previous one. It is nevertheless impressive.

The archways of the Temple, and some of the carvings, are pretty well preserved. In ancient times there was a large statue of Hadrain inside the temple. The only thing left of that statue is part of a foot. What's interesting, once you spot it, is that the foot is resting atop a round marble sphere. This was Hadrian's way... More

You will want to look at the temple for at least half an hour but there is better to come as you walk down the street.....
