Hellenistic Architecture Around the World

In almost the center of Iran, north of the city of Mahallat: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahallat near the village of Khorheh there is the ruin of an ancient Hellenistic city which is called "Milyoona".

I visited this place some days ago:

The largest temple in Iran and probably the largest Hellenistic temple in the world:

Temple of Artemis at Concobar (Temple of Anahita in Kangavar): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temple_...ta_at_Kangavar

One of the seven wonders of the ancient world was the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, it was famous for its great size but the great size of Temple of Ephesus was just 6,050 square meters (about 110 by 55 m), it means less than one seventh of the Temple of Kangavar which was 43,680 square meters (210 by 208 m).

Cyrus this is the dimensions of the peristyle and plinth courtyard, not the temple. The largest surviving classical temples are the one in Jupiter Baalbek in Syria and the Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens. Both of similar size to the Temple of Artemis, although built much later.

The distance between Persepolis and the first one is about 700 km and the second one about 1,100 km.

It refers to a Greek literature which showed us more realistic even though it's too old graphics.
