We were planning to visit the Aizanoi antic city and its impressive temple of Zeus for a while.We took the opportunity to visit it while visiting my mom in Eskisehir.It is located in the nearby city of Kutahya. It needed some extra travelling but totally worth the trouble. Of course Hera the puppy was with us, visiting the temple of her unfaithful husband.
Temple was built in the 2nd century by the Romans.
The basement of the building is as interesting as the temple itself. Thanks to impressive technics of the Roman builders, the huge temple stands on top of this basement for centuries, in an area where big earthquakes hit several times in the history.
My little archaeologist keenly observed every detail of the antic theatre but couldnt find anything to eat.
The round building located right in the center of the nearby village used as a stock exchange building during the Roman period.
A part of the antic road with its beautiful columns could still be seen today in the village.
