Temple of Artemis

The Temple of Artemis was located near the ancient city of Ephesus, about 75 km south from the modern port city of İzmir, in Turkey. Today the site lies on the edge of the modern town of Selçuk.

The Temple of Artemis was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was dedicated to the goddess Artemis and was destroyed in AD 401. The foundations and fragments of the temple can still be seen although it was built three times.
