Side was an ancient Greek city in Anatolia in the region of Pamphylia, in what is now Antalya province, on the southern Mediterranean coast of Turkey. It is now a resort town and one of the best-known classical sites in Turkey. The Temple Of Apollo is located close to Side harbour, about a five-minute walk from the Side town centre. The temple apparently was given to Cleopatra as a token of Anthony’s love to her. It is dedicated to the God of Light, Beauty and Art (Apollo). In all the temple measures 17 by 30 metres. The temple has 8.90 metre Corinthian capitals. The Temple Of Apollo is built entirely of marble. It was built in the second half of the 2nd century A.D and it is surrounded by other important ruins that date back to 7th century B.C.
