We stayed near this temple and walked by it on a daily basis. I would recommend having a tour guide explain the signficance of it. It's easy to walk by without paying much attention, so having the historical background will make it seem more spectacular.

Cheap in. By all means stop if you're nearby but don't go out of your way to see this. Just one little room.

What a wonderful survival from the third century. I've been to what seems like hundreds of Roman temples, but can only count on a few fingers the number of temples that survived with the vaulted stone roofs intact. This building is remarkable in that it...More

I really wish the encroachments should not have been allowed around the temple. The place is historic.
