Sardis Bath complex
13-DEC-2004

Sardis Bath complex

The gymnasium-bath house complex covered 23.000 square metres. It’s built in the “Imperial Style”, implying that it is symmetrical along one axis, with at one end a central hot house (caldarium). It is supposed to have been completed in the middle of the second century AD . It has been repaired and modified through the following centuries, until it was abandoned following the Sassanid invasion in 616.

A look at some decoration.

Thank you for your AWESOME pictures of Turkey. Currently I am in a study on Revelations and we are into the first portion---letters to the seven churches. These pictures have enlightened me and made me aware of how the era of Jesus time was like. I would reccomend this site to anybody who is looking for resources like this. Thank you.
