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.

Great area to visit with several restaurant to choose from. I'd suggest Piazza Nove just behind the Temple. Worth the wait when busy!
We didn't have time to enter even though it was rather small. Very nice from the outside, you can feel the age of the temple. There are many nice restaurants and cafes around it.
Like most of Pula there are these ancient Roman ruins just littered all around the city. The temple is very old 1st century. It's just a open room inside. It's worth having a look inside but doesnt take very long and is cheap enough.
OMG this place took my breath away . Paid a small amount to go inside which was well worth it . It's not a very large temple but oh the history. After a quike look round , sat in a chair which are lined up , looked up to the ceiling & WOW. You really must visit if you have the chance .
Very interesting Temple in the center of Pula. Dating back to approximately 2 B.C it is very well conserved and serves as a small museum of roman statues and antiques. The entrance fee is cheap enough to have a look inside.
