Temple of Apollo in Rhodes

Temple of Apollo in Rhodes

The ruins of the temple of Apollo on the acropolis of Rhodes. Part of the northeastern side of this temple has been restored, giving some idea of what the original structure must have looked like. All buildings on the acropolis date from the Hellenistic era.
