    Built to celebrate the cult of the Emperor
    The Temple of Augustus is one of the buildings located in the old forum – a traffic free square. Built between 2 BC and 14 AD to celebrate the cult of the emperor – dedicated to Augustus Caesar. It is a splendid example of Roman architecture, built on simple lines, with an imposing façade of high Corinthian columns with beautifully carved capitals. Inside permanent exhibition of the best of Pula’s Roman finds – we did not go inside just peeked in. This well preserved temple was hit by a bomb in 1944 and completely destroyed. After the war, the allied occupiers rebuilt it – you can see the patchwork repair job. Definitely worth a visit. Unfortunately, quite a few people sit on the stairs and we had to maneuver around them – my husband waited for a while to get a clear picture of the temple.

    Great monument
    The temple is quite impressive and is in the square called Forum trg. However while looking from the door, I thought the exhbition is quite small hence why I did not purchase an entry ticket. Advice to go during the day because during night many people were sitting on the steps in front of the temple so blocking the view.

    Worth visiting if you're already in town
    Another site that I wouldn't necessarily go out of my way to see, but if you're already in Pula, then it's definitely a place to visit. Historically, and architecturally its a really interesting site. Built between 2 BC and 14 AD, it's one of the oldest structures that I have personally even seen. That being said though, apparently it was destroyed by a bomb in WWII and reconstructed, so I'm not sure how much of it is still original. Still, an important site to see if you're visiting Pula to see history.

A beautiful part of the old town. Seeing some sights like this one is invaluable. The weather was great so the walk through Pula ended with coffee at a beautiful bar called Cvejner

Amazing place worth it to visit the small museum inside the price is 10 kunas for adults and 5 kunas students, the temple, originally dedicated to the goddess Roma and Emperor Augustus, is a typical temple structure erected between years 2 BC and 14 AD .

Nicely restored temple. Very small inside but has some bits of statuary and info which prob makes it worth the money (about a £1!) to go in. We enjoyed sitting in the square with a coffee, watching other tourists and admiring the juxtaposition of the temple in the foreground with the huge bulk of the ship being restored in the docks behind it. Old and modern in one!

The temple is great but you can see everything you want from outside. The interior has a modern statue and some below average displays of Roman figures.

Wonderful preserved given time, fire and the different uses it was put through over 2000 years. Worth a few mins to go inside.

Amazing place I highly recommend going to see!! I have just come back from Pula (Start of April) and me and my dad was the only tourist there(basically)!! So we could have photos with just us and the temple!! Anyone ever been to Rome will understand what a privilege this is and feels!! I recommend going to the forum resturant right opposite this as the views from the table are amazing and they do very good steaks and cocktails 🍸😍
