"Temple of Artemis" Top 5 Page for this destination Temple of Artemis Tip by Djinn76

Temple of Artemis, Jarash: 20 reviews and 56 photos


The dimensions of this temple are incredibly huge. What you can see on this picture is only the "cella", the most sacred part of the building.
It was surrounded by some more columns, walls, there was a huge stair as well.
You really have to come on site to realise by yourself!

Later on, it has been used as a pottery factory and then as a fortress by the Arabs and the Crusaders.
