The bronze statue is that of St. John the baptist and sarcophagi the Bishops of Split. The vault is coffered and impressive.

Pay attention to the faces on the ceiling. No two are alike. Emperor Diocletian associated hiself with the God Jupiter, so I would have throught this temple would be larger. Nevertheless,it is very interesting and well preserved.

There is really nothing here to get excited about. It is small and rather plain and is hard to find. A combination that says it is not worth your time.

The ceiling alone is worth the entry fee. This tiny temple is filled with amazing stone work. There is a brief summary of the history of the site, but it's just a good building to discover on your own.

This temple is in the very center of town in the middle of the Palace but can be easy to miss if you're not looking for it or are not wandering around the Palace in its direction.

We got to go here because it was included in our ticket from Cathedral and Bell Tower of St. Domn so we went. It truly will take you 10 minutes and that includes reading a small piece that describes Temple of Jupiter.

After having read about this Temple, our expectation was higher. You can cover this place in 10 minutes and nothing special but worth visiting if you are already in the Palace.
