This is the oldest temple ruin inside the Roman Forum, built around 400 BC. Only one side of the temple with its huge columns and detailed carvings remain, but absolutely worth a visit when you see the Roman Forum.

It is the oldest sacred place in Rome after the Temples of Vesta and Jupiter. This oldest temple in the Roman Forum, used as the state treasury in the ancient times. The temple's high podium and the columns of the porch can still be seen.
