beautiful ornate ruins

this is in the ruins area in Ephesus. One of the better vertical ruins on the grounds. Bring water and an umbrella if visiting during the summer.

Yes, we made it to one of the main attractions in Ephesus. This is because, it is one of the temples take looks like it is mostly restored to how it should look like. It has been beautifully pieced back together with the Starbucks Lady.

Temple of Hadrian, on Curetes Street is one of the best preserved and most stunning structures. It was built before 138 A.D by P.Quintilius and dedicated to Emperor Hadrian, from Athens, who visited the city in 128 BC.

What you see in the photos is all there is. Not really worthy of it's own entry here but if you tour Ephesus, you will see it. Wikipedia will tell you all you need to know.

IT is a nice façade, but no real temple behind it. Something one passes along the street. Good for a look.

The citizens of Ephesus must have been canny as the temple to Hadrian, built politically for his visit, was repurposed from a previous one. It is nevertheless impressive.
