THE ROAM THEATRE:
During the Pamukkale tour from Izmir, we will be visiting the Roam Theatre. It is located in the middle of the Hierapolis and it is one of the most well preserved of many ancient buildings. It had the capacity to accommodate 8500 to 10,000 spectators. It was divided into two parts i.e. upper and lower parts of the seat by a diazoma. People used to arrange religious ceremonies, concerts, and competitions in this theatre.
The Roman Baths were built back in 3rd century. Its construction was done by the classical architectural features having large stone blocks. When Christianity was accepted by most of the people in Hierapolis in 4th century, these Roman Baths were converted into a church. Walls were covered with marble slabs while the pedestals were carved by the Christianity symbols like crosses.
THE TEMPLE OF APOLLO:
Apollo was known to be the most important God for the local people. In front of the theatre, this was the honorary temple built for him. It is because of the excavated rock mass at the back of the temple that it was assumed that there were large steps to reach the temple of Apollo. Doric style marbles were used for the temple because of having the higher quality as compared to the main street columns.
