The temple is currently under some type of fortification/renovation/restoration phase, but still a very large area to see with many ancient temple structures. This was one of the first places we visited is Rhodes and there is ample signage to get you there.

There is not much left to look at and alas not much effort has been made to show its former glory, somewhat disappointing.

Hard to find, no directions to this site. It is close to the ancient stadium but not maintained at all. Garbage and weeds are all over.

On the top of Mount Smith lies these ruins. Not restored like the Apollon temple, so you can appreciate the place in its natural state. Apart from traffic a quiet and serene experience. The neighbour power station adds a sobering tone, though.

Oké, It's old... really old, but you would expect a more monumental sight. Grass and weeds as high as my hips, but we finaly found the temple.... OR should i say 5 rocks in the Middle of weeds.

Beautiful place to come and visit its right next to the ancient stadium of Rhodes. Great place to walk around and soak up the ancient Greek culture. This is the place where Rhodes rugby was started.

We couldn0t even see it from the streets. Since we are stubborn we insisted walking down the high grass and the spines. Needs desperately some intervention.

a place of history, we have visited the temple a few years ago, where it was easily reached, and we could walk among history (literally). The place is not registered on signs, and it is not cared at all. A great miss.
