What travelers say:

Proceed all the way along City Walk and go back to the south gate of the starting point. After walking to the end, Zeus Temple, which represents the sun, and the South Theater, which echoes with the North Theater, are greeted. This Zeus temple, like other buildings around it, was influenced by both Greece and Rome. Therefore, the strong traces of the two civilizations can be vaguely seen from the building itself. The Temple of Zeus is not far from the Oval Square, you can see it by walking a few hundred meters across the square and up the steps. There is also a stone inscription on it "Theon, son of Demetrius, gave 7100 drachmas of Tyrian silver for the building of Zeus Olympius" (A.D. 69-70). But now, this magnificent temple of Zeus has been devastated.
