Therefore, as the goddess of hunting in ancient Greek mythology, Artemis was deeply loved by the Greek people. In order to express her devotion to her, around 550 BC, the ancient Greeks built the world-famous Temple of Artemis. The Temple of Artemis is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Temple of Artemis was the largest marble building in the world at that time, covering an area of ​​6,050 square meters, larger than a football field. The site of the Temple of Artemis is estimated to be located in the ancient city of Ephesus, about 50 km south of Izmir in Turkey.
