Temple of Artemis (3/6)

List item

Built in present day Turkey by the Greeks, the Temple of Artemis was the finest construction built of its day, proven by the fact that it was rebuilt several times before its ultimate demise. Experiencing hardships ranging from arson to flooding, the temple had its first construction originally date all the way back to the bronze age. It attracted immigrants from all corners of the known world and led to an influx of worship towards the Greek god who would find a staple place in the venerations of both the Greeks and then later the Romans.
