Worth seeing for me...

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

Yes, this was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. But there's really not much to see here, other than some rubble and one column. It's worth a quick stop because it's interesting and free, and our guide provided a lot of information about what it once was. I'm glad we spent a few minutes here. Just know... More

I get it, it is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. But actually if you look around, you will see rocks and only one column. Even when we got down from the bus, we was looking around and was asking each other, what should we see here? This place used to be beautiful, I get it. But... More
