Stop At: Temple of Apollo, Ataturk Boulevard Yenihisar, Didim 07330 Turkey

Didyma was famous throughout the ancient world as the place where a colossal Temple of Apollo stood, and the oracle revealed the future. The Word meant ‘the twins’ and the place was the meeting place of Zeus and Leto, to have their twins Apollo and Artemis. In its heyday, Didyma was not a city, but a place of worship, connected with Miletus by the so-called Sacred Way. This road was used by the pilgrims who arrived at Didyma, seeking answers to nagging questions.

The first temple in Didyma was built by the ancient Greeks in the late 8th century BCE. Today, the remains of the archaic temple are located under Hellenistic construction.
