Temple of Aphrodite

Back to our holiday - we visited Aphrodisias - the legendary city of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love (from where we get the word Aphrodisiac).

The temple itself was transformed into a Christian Basilica and is one of the most intact stadia in the ancient world.

The place where ancient council meetings were held - bit different to our council chamber!

View across the ancient city





Such a fantastic place to visit - our Turkish tour guide was an archeologist, so he told us plenty about these ancient sites.
