Bishop’s Palace and the guest room located to the north of the courtyard, worth seeing and dating back to 5C AD. Aphrodite Temple, almost the most important structure of Aphrodisias.

It was an attractive place for the concerts; the capacity was 1,750 persons and dates back to 2C AD. Tetrapylon, the monumental gate built in 2C AD.
