Walk in the shadow of imposing columns at Temple of Apollo, one of the most important sanctuaries of the ancient world. The temple sits at the site of ancient Didyma, which was, next to Delphi, the largest center of the cult of Apollo. After the destruction of the original temple in the 5th century BCE, a grand project of reconstruction was started, but never finished. Giant columns and elaborate stone reliefs allow you to imagine the magnitude of the envisioned temple. The ruins lie in the town center surrounded by a good selection of cafes and restaurants. If you're visiting on a hot day make sure to bring adequate sun protection. Arrange to visit Temple of Apollo and other attractions in Didim using our Didim travel itinerary planner.

The temple is magnificent! Wish we could see the whole thing but even the ruins give the feeling of what it would be like to walk inside of that huge temple. I loved it. As an architect, one day I wanna make an app that works with VR tech to help you see and feel the whole ancient structures and cities as you walk inside them.
Great place for exploring ancient Greek ruins. Some explanation boards need to be updated or renewed as the information is beginning to fade from weather wear. You just have to marvel at the height, size and the accuracy that the stones were carved by hand tools and put in place by manual labour. Shame it suffered from earthquake damage.
