Once was one of the seven ancient wonders. Almost nothing remained. Some columns from this ancient temple were used in Hagia Sofia, in Constantinopol. To make an idea of how great it was, you can see Apollo Temple in Didim.

Having heard that only one reconstructed column stands to represent this great Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, many travelers don't bother with it, but we were glad we made the effort to find it on our long walks around Selçuk. It is a beautiful and highly evocative place, especially if you have read... More

Do not expect to see a temple as there is only one column remaining. The rest is in a museum in London. I would skip this place.

Just one pillar remains but lots of history to be learnt.. The place is filled with lots of salesmen selling history books and that's a nuisance.

Little remains of the temple and even less of the original site of Ephesus before it moved up the hill to find a better local environment avoiding the mosquitoes. A pair of storks and their young chick occupied the top of the sole standing column when we visited.

This site did not have much left to see. There are really aggressive salesmen that await you as you exit the bus. Only visit this site to cross off ancient wonder from your list.

What used to be a wonder of the ancient world is now reduced to a single column that now holds up a storks nest. Worth visiting only to cross it off the list of ancient wonders you have visited.

This was one of the Seven Wonders of the World but at the site you will not see a lot. A pillar has been reconstructed just to mark the place. However it's very near Ephesus and Selcuk town so definitely worth a quick stop.
