Apart from the drawing and the description of what used to be here, there isn't much left of one of the original seven wonders of the world I would not go out of my way to stop here

Was one of the seven wonders of the world alas not much left. Must use your imagination to visualise the size for the age.

Just a little side-trip after our tour of Ephesus. Considering the importance of this historical sight, there isn't really much left. Something to see if you have the time but don't worry if you can't get there.

Even there is only one column, it is worth to visit and take nice pictures of the column-trample and the castle and green trees and the swamp.

Small quick stop. Walking distance from the museum, Basilica of St John, restaurants, etc. It looks like they are working on a formal, nice entrance but for now if you blink, you will miss it, as you can see in the picture.

There’s not much left of the magnificent Temple of Artemis that was considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world. Built in the 6th century BC, there is literally a single pillar left standing. Surrounded by busloads of tourists.

Having a column does not deserve the tag of a "ruin". There's nothing to watch. The place is not attractive at all

Although it’s not much to look at, I appreciated seeing it after having read Acts 19 before visiting. The craft makers were quite upset at Paul’s ministry that their goddess Artemis would lose favor and not receive the glory she deserved; the state of the...More

Where was the structure? The ruins have just disappeared over the years. There is only one reconstructed pillar to show visitors the height of the former structure The rest is left to the imagination of the folks.

Not much to see but then I’m not a fan of sites that have been over restored - it was good to see it just because it is such an important site. I was, however, more taken with the terrapins in the pond and the...More

It is just a small open field with some ruins here and there. There is no museum at that place. You don't even need a ticket to enter this place. This place has ruins, 1 small stall that sells souvenir and one man selling a... More
