  The temple of Artemis in Jerash
by TheWanderingCamel

When the temples were rebuilt after the catastrophic earthquake, they were conceived to be "earthquake-proof". If you slide your fingers in between the huge stones of the temple of Artemis you can feel the column swaying in the wind.

If you are nervous about this, the guide will insert a knife and you can see it moving up and down to the movement of the column.
