Impressive, large temple
Jun 2021 • Solo
Two major sections exist: first one just ahead of you, a glorius entrance to a temple, semifinished construction. Second one lies inside the temple, go in, walk down the corridor and embrace a large area for ceremonies

Jul 2021 • Family
On our drive from Izmir to Bodrum we stopped at this historical site
the Temple of Apollo at Didyma was the fourth largest temple in the ancient Greek world. The temple's oracle, second in importance only to that at Delphi, played a significant role in the religious and political life of both Miletus and the greater Mediterranean world; many rulers, from Alexander the Great to the Roman emperor Diocletian (244-313 CE) visited or sent delegations to this oracle seeking the guidance and favor of Apollo God of mythology

Lovely little trip out
Oct 2020 • Couples
Good trip out. 28tl entry fee. Will take around 5 minutes to walk around if you just look at it. Hour if you take pictures and read the signs. You can pretty much see everything from outside but for experience up and close it’s worth the money. Can see inside the grounds as well.
Markets and shops outside it. With WiFi and can get a little drink and shop!

Appreciate the size and workmanship from inside the temple
Sep 2020
In the suburbs of Didim town a short Google map search will reveal the location of the Temple of Apollo. An impressive structure with massive walls and several tall columns still standing. Panorama photos could be taken from outside the compound so you wouldn't really have to pay. But for just a small entrance fee you can walk through a building over 2000 years old and admire and wonder how such an impressive building was constructed with no machinery all those years ago. And unusually, the most impressive part is being inside the building itself rather than viewing from outside.

Awesome experience of a building dating from 700 BC. The cafe opposite the temple does an amazing grilled sea bass.

Another Temple of Apollo
Sep 2020
Set in the grounds on the outskirts of Didim. Cost 25 tl to go into the grounds. You can see just as much from the outside, However, if you want to get up close then you pay the entrance fee. There is a very small museum on site. If you have mobility issues the only access is down some quite steep steps. I would allow about 60 - 90 minutes to see absolutely everything, not a particularly big site, but for the history buffs, probably a worthwhile visit. It is an open site. Therefore, there is very little cover from the sun except for some trees. In the summer the heat here regularly hits the high 30s.
