“Nothing left of it!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

All that stands of this Wonder of the World, is one lone column. Its a pity that what must have been an erstwhile grand structure is in such shambles with no sight of any restoration taking place, may be because its beyond that.
So, why I wonder, should it be a "Wonder of the Ancient World", when there's nothing there to see !!
Not worth the few mins we spent there.......

“Don't judge the temple by its column”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Alright, once you reach the "temple", walk across the street to see the actual temple. The temple has an extremely extensive history but the remnants of it are not impressive. If you go to the "Temple of Artemis", a "wonder" of the ancient world, you will be greeted by a reconstructed column. Just take a quick walk across the street to see the real columns in the mosque!

“Use Your Imagination”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Since there is but one of the original 128 columns still standing one must try to imagine what this enormous temple looked like. It would have covered a football field and and was not far from the shoreline. Now that shore is long since silted up as is the shoreline of Ephesus. So not a great deal to see here but the history of the place is intriguing.

“Little to see”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

What a shame that all that stands of one of the Seven Wonders is a cobbled-together column. There is little chance that there will ever be any more, but it is hard to pass up the opportunity to see the location of something like this temple.
A little more information on the site would make the visit a little more worthwhile.
There is no charge for entry and except for a few souvenir touts, you are likely to have the place to yourself. Reading about he temple before going would help understand the past magnificence of the site.
