Euromos


Situated 10km from Milas, possibly once connected to this city, lies the ruins of Euromos (meaning STRONG) also known as 'Cyramos' or 'Hyramos' in the 5th century B.C.

Set in a forest of Olive trees the ruined city of Euromos is proud to have the ruined Greek Temple of Zeus. The temple dates back to the 2nd century AD and is believed to have been built by the emperor Hadrian. It has 6 columns on architrave and 9 columns on the sides. The three columns on the north side and the one at the south-western corner do not have the grooved shape like the other columns, probably because the decoration work was never completed.
Most of the columns facing north and west have panels with a memorial inscription.
Located about a mile south of the village of Selimiye, the temple area has no services, although there may be a villager selling cold drinks in the summer months.
This is actually a much larger archeological site than just the temple. The hillside to the east is littered with ruins, and if you spend an hour hiking around you can find a theater an agora and massive defence walls.
