Split, Temple of Jupiter, the black marble Egyptian sphinx at the door has a history of 3,500 years, but unfortunately it has been "beheaded". In contrast, the sphinx statue on the right side of the cathedral bell tower is intact.
The temple is the atrium of Diocletian's Palace, surrounded by tall Romanesque columns, composed of the bell tower of the Cathedral of St. Domnius and the annex church. The front hall is a circular hemispherical hall with a tall vault, which has collapsed, leaving a circular dome hole. The noon sun shines directly through the dome, bringing infinite reveries.
The Jupiter Temple is located in Split, the second largest city in Croatia. The entrance to the temple is guarded by a black granite headless lion sculpture. It is very solemn. The sculpture was imported from Egypt in the 5th century.
The temple is also known as the "World Cultural Heritage in Ruins" and is located in the capital of Lebanon, a country with a long history in the Middle East.
The temple is very small, and it has been severely damaged by weather and frost. Only the stone lions in front of the temple are intact and there is a small square in front of the temple.
Very distinctive historical building, many people go to see it
