Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument (at Ephseus)

Originally posted on retireediary:

A trip to Ephseus is a trip into the past with opportunity for viewing lots of monuments.

Our trip took us to the Library Celsus of Ephseus in Turkey.CIMG0230

The library is an ancient Roman building with two storeys. It was built in honor of the Roman Senator Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus and completed in 135 AD by Celsus’ son. In fact, Celsus used his own money for building this library outside Rome.CIMG0236

The library was built to store 12,000 scrolls and to serve as a monumental tomb for Celsus

Also of interest is the Temple of Hadrian.CIMG0224

The name “Temple of Hadrian” is not really accurate: it is more a monument than a temple, and was dedicated not only to Hadrian but also Artemis and the people of Ephesus.

Hey there, bow friends!

I know.  I took another Tara break.  It always seems to happen at this time every semester.  I also took a month off of monthly favorites in February because I didn’t have very many favorites and thought I’d save them for a little combo favorites this month.  Because I’ve done a lot of cool things these last couple of months, I’m going to include some memories as favorites in a separate post of non-beauty favorites.

First things first, I thought I should address the odd product out.  A couple months back my parents asked if I needed anything for my mini apartment at school.  I was in…
