The Temple of Artemis
One of the Seven Wonders of the World is the Temple of Artemis, also known as the Temple of Artemesium. It was located in Ephesus, which is now western Turkey. The Temple of Artemis was a Greek temple dedicated to an ancient depiction of the goddess Artemis.

Around 550 BCE, Croesus, the king of Lydia, built the magnificent temple, which was subsequently destroyed by a lunatic named Herostratus in 356 BCE. The Artemesium was remarkable not just for its enormous size, which was 350 by 180 feet (about 110 by 55 meters), but also for the amazing artistic works of art that were on display within. According to legend, on the same day that the temple burned down, Alexander the Great was born. Artemis herself was so focused on his birth that she was unable to rescue her temple. Alexander offered to pay to restore the vast temple as an adult, but since he was considered a deity by some, his generous offer was declined.

The Temple of Artemis was home to a number of renowned Greek artists' sculptures. The temple also housed works by Polyclitus, Pheidias, Cresilas and Phradmon, as well as bright paintings and gilded columns inlaid with Gold and Silver. There were many sculptors competing to make the greatest statue. The Amazons, who are said to have established Ephesus, were frequently represented in these works.
