A view of miniature Temple of Artemis at Miniatürk in springtime (Turkish: İlkbahar mevsiminde minyatür Efes Artemis Tapınağı'nın Miniatürk Maket Park/Minyatür Türkiye Parkı'nda bir görüntüsü). The park is a miniature theme park situated at the north-eastern shore of Golden Horn, literally Turkish Haliç or Altın Boynuz, in Şehr-i Istanbul, Turkey.

The Temple of Artemis (Greek: Ἀρτεμίσιον, or Artemision), also known less precisely as the Temple of Diana, was a Greek temple dedicated to a goddess Greeks identified as Artemis and was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was located in Ephesus (near the modern town of Selçuk in present-day), Izmir Province, Modern Republic of Turkey and was completely rebuilt three times before its eventual destruction in 401. The temple was designed by the architect Chersiphron, with many of the columns, relates Herodotus, erected at the expense of Croesus, the fabulously wealthy king of Lydia (ruled 560-546 BC), the Ionic Temple of Artemis at Ephesus on the coast of Asia Minor was a wonder of the world. The first temple to be entirely of marble and the largest Greek temple ever built, it was some 377 feet long and 180 feet wide. Constructed on marshy ground, says Pliny, so as not to be in danger from earthquakes, the foundation was laid on a bed of packed charcoal and sheepskins, the column drums and architraves moved from the quarry, relates Vitruvius, by fitting them with large wheels and then, like rolling axles, having them pulled by oxen. Ephesus was thought to have been founded by the Amazons and their statues, chosen from a competition among the most celebrated artists of the day, were dedicated at the completion of the Temple of Artemis about 440-430 BC. Roman copies of these lost bronze originals each show the figure of the same size and dress, with the right arm raised over her head, sometimes leaning on a spear.
