Temple of Zeus Olbius

The remote village of Uzuncaburc is located high in the Taurus Mountains at about 28 km from Silifke. Once it was the ancient temple-city of Olbia also called Olba and was a centre of worship to Zeus Olbius. This site, originally the Zeus Cult Centre, was separated by the Romans from the Hellenistic city of Olba and was given a city-state status with a new name Diocaesarea in 72 AD.
