Photographer's Note

Bergama is very historical city in Northern Aegean Region of Turkey. It always draws my attention photographically. Because there are a lot of units to be taken. Despite of being in January, there was bright blue sky in that day. I used circuler polarizer fitler to abtain brighter blue. I think I achived. Weren’t I?

The Temple of Trajan was a 2C AD temple in Corinthian order, dedicated to Trajan, built by his successor Hadrian. Both emperors were worshipped there. The temple was built of marble, probably on the site of a previous Hellenistic building. Before the construction, the area was leveled off by using a successful arched and vaulted substructure. The temple is flanked by stoas on three sides, the one at the back being higher than the others. It was in Corinthian order to have a peripteros plan, with 9 by 6 columns.
