After that, Only the foundation and one column remain of this temple which once measured 425 feet long, 220 feet long. Paul’s successful ministry in this city was considered a threat to this very temple.

Great day out - Our tour guide Esra is very knowledgeable and incredibly friendly. We had a smaller tour group which always great because it gave us the flexibility to ask questions and move around more freely. We were in no way rushed and were given ample time to view all the sites. All in all, an incredible day out and I really would recommend.
Very good tour
