Temple of Augustus and Rome

Located next to the Haci Bayram Mosque, the temple was built in AD 10 as a tribute to Emperor Augustus. Only ruins of the walls and columns still remain, making it the perfect spot for history enthusiasts.

Do & See

To experience the ancient Ankara head over to Ulus, where the narrow and winding streets are filled with stalls and shops selling antiques and Kilims, traditional Persian tapestry. Kızılay is the place to go to for an outdoor beer, deep fried mussels, and inexpensive shopping. If fashion is what you seek, the fashionable central Tunalı and Çankaya have the best offer of modern food and clothing.
