The Temple is seen in the Ancient City and is a great Kodak moment when you pose in front of it. The Ancient City and Basilica St John are the 2 best things in Ephesus. Recommend touring with a guide. We used Ephesus Port Tours who were outstanding!

We visited this attraction on May 15,2015. Do not miss it! It is one of the best preserved and most beautiful structures on Curetes Street. It was built before 138 A.D by P.Quintilius and was dedicated to the Emperor Hadrian, who came to visit the city from Athens in 128 A.D The facade of the temple has four Corinthian columns... More

This temple is very well preserved and restored. You can still learn a lot from their religion and worship by looking at the carvings in the walls. In order for you to see this temple you have to make it to the Ancient City Ephesus, buy a ticket and then you'll be able to enjoy the whole city.

I found other things in this area to be amazing but for this I really did not understand why people would take their time going here when there are much larger and much more interesting stops. If you are here for a week go ahead and schedule this, but if you are here for one day this is something you... More

Its difficult to judge individual item of complex. All monuments of Ephesus makes it a tourist place. Best part is you don't need guide once you read details given on board. At best you can take audio guide and share between two, You will not miss this as it is just adjacent to Celsus Library.

Continuing down the street Hadrian's Temple was even more impressive than the Fountain. It was built around the same time (138 AD). As visitors in ancient times walked into the temple they would be greeted by a relief of Medusa above the doorway after the four columns and arch.

Almost restored temple. It's really awesome architecture. The goddess Medusa is at the top of the arches. You can only imagine what was the real shapes of that temple in the past!

This temple is another highlight in the ruins of the city located on one of the main streets and very accessible to visitors, the inscriptions are still visible and with little imagination you can see the past come to life here.
