As a great symbol of prosperity, the great Temple of Apollo was constructed over 2000 years ago in the city of Side in Antayla in the mid-second century.
A wonderful historical site to visit in Turkey! The Temple of Apollo is located at the end of Side’s peninsula. Whilst exploring the Temple of Apollo, you will see very close to the Temple the remains of a Basilica. You can see domes built of brick and an expanse of space that is surrounded by walls that are varying heights as they have fallen with the weather and age. There are only five and a half columns left standing, which is amazing in itself considering the length of time they have been stood and the weather conditions as the Temple site is directly on the coast.
