If you dont like the history, I suggest you to not come to this temple. The ruin was over, I mean almost all parts of the building were destroyed. You can picture a small pond inside it. The remaining was a column with the storks above it.

Artemis Temple has little left standing but what there is dwarfs you worth having your picture next to them to appreciate the magnitude of the place.there are some gorgeous views with the fallen stone and a feeling of Grandeur in the ruins. There is a walk up the hill behind the Temple to get a better view (and photos) but... More

it's not much left but since I wanted to see everything in Ephesus it's surely worth visiting in my opinion. It's really up to it the individual.

We went here after Ephesus and really don't bother there is one pillar left and instead you're hassled by locals selling souvenirs. We stayed for 5 mins max !

If this Temple was not on the way to Ephesus, and I hadn't taken a wrong turn, it wouldn't have been worth turning around to see. Maybe this feeling would be different if so many other ruins didn't vie for attention. If you have more time that you know what to do with, see this site. If not, I would... More

In comparison to other sites the temple of artemis pales in significance. Despite its reputation there is one sign and essentially a few half exposed rocks. Absolutely nothing to hint of its previous grandeur. Its worth a look if driving past but not enough to make a trip for

We toured the Temple of Artemis with a professional guide as part of an Ephesus tour. The temple is very interesting if you know the history, otherwise there is not a lot to see. It is free and on the way to Ephesus from Selcuk, so it is worth stopping for the 1/2 hour it takes to walk around. There... More

Just know before going to check out the Temple of Artemis that there is hardly anything here (there is only 1 standing column that sadly was placed in its current location for display/viewing purposes). But if it means anything... checking out this temple you can say you have been to one of the seven wonders of the world. The site... More

As others have said, there is only just a single pillar standing. We spent 5 mins here, even with a guide. In my honest opinion, you can cross it off your list in lieu of another site. If you stay nearby, just walk over to take a look. The only plus points of coming here is saying that you have... More

Yes there is not much there, but if your ever in lovely Selcuk, then it is worth your while to wonder over to what use to be one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Best of all it is free (just watch out for the guys trying to sell you "ancient" coins they "dug up"). It is neat... More
