  Temple of Isis
by Venturingnow
 
 

There are two other main temples within Pompeii. The Temple of Isis is the best preserved temple of Pompeii. It dates from the pre-Roman age and was almost entirely rebuilt after the earthquake of 62 A.D. I read that the sacred water of the Nile was kept in an underground passage inside the temple, weird huh?. A large room that was used as a meeting room for the initiates of Isis is behind the temple.


Now, the Temple of Apollo has a really nice bronze statue and some really nice arcades, the columns are quite impressive here.
