The Temple of Hadrian, Ephesus

The ancient city of Ephesus in southwestern Turkey offers a sense of timelessness. Situated on the Aegean sea, it was a flourishing seaport in ancient times and is replete with symbols of its Greek and Roman past. Structures from the ancient world found there today include the Temple of Artemis—one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient Word—the Library of Celsus, theaters, sophisticated aqueducts, public baths, and Hadrian’s Temple.

Ephesus also had strong ties to early Christianity. It was home for a time to the Apostle Paul and is also believed to be one of the sites of the Seven Churches of the Revelation.

Author, filmmaker, and tour guide Serif Yenen highlights the rich history and archaeological wonders of this ancient place.
