The Temple of Apollo at Didyma in modern-day Turkey. The temple was the fourth largest temple in the ancient Greek world. The temple’s oracle, second in importance only to that at Delphi, played a significant role in the religious and political life of both Miletus and the greater Mediterranean world.
