As what the other reviewers have pointed out, only one single column stands which is a bit disappointing. I wouldn't have visited this place except that it was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, Spent only 5 minutes taking pictures at this site.

If you are a history buff with a rich romantic imagination, this site (one of the true wonders of the ancient world) is sure to captivate you with what might have been... ... if you are not, then you are going to be pretty disappointed...

The images in the net shows different than the reality. It was not easy to find as the Google maps shows wrongly how to get there. Then once reach there only to see a pillar and some ducks was just bad. The place not even worth visiting.

Yes this is just one pillar, but to the people who don't know this temple was pretty much completely destroyed shame on you! This is one of the ancient wonders and you can certainly see why. The walls are clearly visible and with a little imagination you can certainly get a feel for the scale and enormity of this ancient... More

The history of the last piece of the monument is amazing. When visiting a must see is the ISABEY MOSQUE which is in walking distance built in 1375 it has a wonderful Courtyard & the Mosque is open to visit. This can be combined with the must see Ancient City of EPHESUS this makes an Excellent one day adventure together.

Temple of Artemis is one of the seven ancient Wonders of the World. Artemis considered part of ancient Ephesus has been added to UNESCO's World Cultural Heritage List. Today you can only see one pillar and ruins. Some parts exhibited in the London British Museum and some original parts were taken in the 5 th century to build Hagia Sophia... More

Do not get too enthusiastic about visiting this wonder of the ancient world. Hardly anything remains except a column in pool of stagnant water, oh and a rather nice view of the castle in the distance.

Had to go because I can't skip archeological sites. Not much here...just one big pillar and a few other bits and pieces scattered around. Some (not so pushy) vendors also hang out here. I can see why the site is free.

We got to the artemis temple in the afteroon to only find a pole in the middle of a green dirty pond. It was very disappointing as we only stayed 2mins and the site was very small. I would not recommend visiting the artemis temple.

A little disappointing only because it came after Ephersus but interesting - one lonely column, however after 6 weeks in Turkey looking at many ancient ruins from East to West it was one of the last tours. Good tour and I never like to miss any ancient relic, worth a visit though.
