Temple Of Augustus - Review
This well-preserved Roman temple dedicated to first Roma Emperor Augustus has stood the test of time for over 2000 years surviving rise and fall of different empires, conversion into structure for various other purposes than what it was built for, restored after hit by World War bombings.
Built around 2 BC, this temple is also dedicated to goddess Roma- a personification of Rome. It was a part of triad of temples which didn’t survive over the period of time. During the Byzantine rule, it was converted into a church and later as a granary.
The exterior of the structure is worth admiring and picturesque. The interior acts as a lapidarium and a souvenir store.

Temple Of Augustus, Pula Reviews
Beautiful temple located in the main square/old forum. Entry is included in the Pula card or, you can pay at the door. It looks amazing both day & night as it transforms in each setting. Highly recommend just taking time to sit back & enjoy the view, even if you don’t know the history behind it.
I followed a Rick Steves Guidebook to this point, he talks about it in length in his Croatian Guidebook. My husband and I walked up to this place and the splendid detail of the place doesn't go unnoticed, just the history alone is fascinating. Highly recommend!
Great little site to visit, interesting history of the building with some neat artifacts inside. Entry admission was something like 20 kuna.
Great to take pictures but the entrance fee for the small room inside (exhibition of mannequin seated chairs) is not worth it.
Really cool building with nice artifacts, but the 'museum' was filled with creepy human-like dolls seated on chairs with their backs to you as you walk in, then when you walk in and turn around, you see how disturbing they are...
