The past talks

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.

This partially restored Temple of Hadrian gives you an idea of how magnificent the city must have been in its heyday. The goddess Medusa is at the top of the arches.

In my opinion the Temple of Hadrian is the most attractive edifices on the Curetes Street. In front of the facade of the porch, there were four columns with Corinthian capitals supporting a triangular pediment. Above the two columns in the middle, there is an arch which curves down from the pediment, and the bust of Tyche, the goddess of... More

The Temple of Hadrian is another stop while walking along Curetes Street and is worth your time. The excavations and restorations that went into this temple is amazing... The columns have a beautiful arch sitting atop of it and don't forget to look for Medusa's head which was placed to help ward off those evil spirits. Our tour guide did... More

The stones that remain of this temple - and there are plenty of them - have been cleaned and restored and the quality of the sculpture is fantastic!

you see the temple of Hadrian, while visiting the ruins of the old city of Ephesus. We could not enter inside the temple, but saw it from the out side.
