Laodikea


 

The ancient city of Laodicea, in Denizli province, used to be one of the most well-known and important Anatolian city in the 1st century BC. In addition to the numerous ancient buildings that still survive, Laodicea is unique for Christianity for being the home of one of the seven churches in Asia Minor.

Architecturally rich with its theaters, stadium, gymnasium, government building, the Temple of Zeus and the church, Laodicea also sheds light into the lives of its citizens through the inscriptions and the coins. An earthquake in the year 194 AD completely destroyed the city.
