Declared as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Temple of Artemis is located within Ephesus. It was a Greek temple and was dedicated to the goddess Artemis. The temple used to have 127 sculptured columns. However, the temple faced destruction due to floods and disturbance of the invaders in the last thousand years. Later on, it was rebuilt in the same location as for the people of Ephesus, Artemis was the goddess of fertility that brought wealth to the city from the pilgrims and the higher class people. At present, you can only see the ruins of this extravagant temple. Some of the beautiful remains of this temple are preserved in the London British Museum.
