  The Great Temple
by dr.firas

Favorite thing: On the site of a previous sanctuary dating back to the Bronze and Iron ages as well as to the Hellenistic period, The Roman Temple of Jupiter was built during the 1st c. AD.
It consists of a cella built on a 12m. High podium, and a courtyard surrounded by a colonnaded portico.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
