View of the statue of Artemis in the interior of a model at Miniatürk (Istanbul) of the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus.  For a view of the actual statue/idol Click Here.

The Ephesians began to construct this version of the temple in 356 BC after a man named Herostratus had burned down the former temple.  It was one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world until the Goths sacked it in A.D. 263.
