It was a good visit with family. We still need to figure out why they have built it on top of a river though. It is great too see all kind of faith in different timelines practiced in one place. And, even now, part of the building is used as a mosque and in use!!!

I suggest seeing this on the way to the Acropolis or you might be disappointed. The best feature is the standing walls made of red brick. The original structure had to be an awesome site but now there’s not much else to see except a replica of some Egyptian god. As the Christian churches weakened, most of them compromised and this one apparently turned into an Egyptian temple. The relics from here are in the museum in Bergama which also houses many relics from the Acropolis. If you see this after the Acropolis, be prepared to yawn and then go find something to eat.

It is a ruined temple in the ancient city of Pergamon, now Bergama, It is one of the largest Roman structures still surviving in the ancient Greek world. The temple is thought to have been used for the worship of Egyptian gods. Worth visiting but sadly most tour group would bypass this site.

This temple is one of the largest Roman era structures still surviving in the ancient Greek world according to Wikipedia. It is quite impressive and has been the site of several different types of worship over the centuries from the worship of Egyptian gods to Christianity and is now the site of a tiny mosque in one of the surviving towers.
