This is in the middle of the city. It went from temple to a basilica. I even saw two tablets in Hebrew that were just laying there. Big place. For ancient history lovers, this is a must see.

It is really nice please to visit, there are sculptures and one of them is renewed by adding missing parts and looks like original. Walls and hall look amazing and archeological works are still going.

It’s interesting but not much to see and not enough inscription about it. For an instance, it says Roman times but doesn’t say exactly which century. Entrance fee is 5 TL. Under 18 doesn’t pay. It takes less then half an hour to visit.

It's a very interesting location never seen such architecture. There are statues from Egypt and the material used are quite different than usual. I'm impressed

Not much to see other than the building which is impressive. Worth a stop to see and walk around. Not much inside.
