Temple of Jupiter, Pompeii: 9 reviews and 9 photos


The Temple of Jupiter is the most important, and thus prominent, building in the forum. Everyone in the town would visit here frequently to give offerings to the King of the Gods. Much of the grandeur of the temple, as with many buildings, was destroyed in an Earthquake several years prior to the eruption. Being the King of the Gods, Jupiter?s temple would be on a par with the Temple of Venus.
For more information on Jupiter and the other gods and goddesses in Pompeii, see my Local Customs tips.

Directions: The most prominently placed building, at the north of the forum, between the two ceremonial arches.
