Didim (Didyma) Archaeological Site

Aydn Province's Didim (Didyma) district is on a peninsula and about three hours' drive from the city center. The Apollo Temple, the Artemis Temple, and the Medusa Relief are all located in Didim. It was inhabited for centuries by Mycenae, the Cretes, the Persians, the Romans, the Byzantines, and finally the Turks. It dates back to the Neolithic era. The Apollo Temple, built in the fourth or third century BC, is regarded as one of the oldest temples in the world still standing. Between the eighth century and 494 BC, during the Ionian Rebellion, Brankhos clerics were in charge of this extremely potent and unique divination site. The other well-known attractions in the city are the Medusa Reliefs and the Artemis Temple. One of the most frequented locations in Aydin is the ancient site of Didim.
