Aphrodisias is an ancient city that was named after the Goddess, Aphrodite. This ancient metropolis prominently worshipped her and was commonly known as the city of love for this. Prosperity enveloped the city, thanks to the creativity and excellent craftsmanship of those who utilised a large amount of good quality marble nearby. Unfortunately, the city was abandoned after earthquakes in the 4th and 7th century that destroyed much of the buildings and added a new flood zone on one side.
Now the ruins show the history of the city and its quality of the craftsmanship are still marvelled at today. In the city are many landmarks of a bustling metropolis, its own Odeon (councilchambers), stadium, and the temple to Aphrodite.
