Very small Temple of Jupiter, which is now used as a Baptistery. Worth a visit but nothing to get too excited about. Was a little overcrowded when I visited as got there at the same time as a tour group, which may have taken away...More

This temple was initially dedicated to worship ancient Roman god Jupiter but was eventually turned into a baptistery. Don’t missed the other sphinx that’s outside the building.

The Temple of Jupiter was built around the 3rd century, about the same time is the palace itself. Jupiter was the name of Diocletian's father and was also the highest Roman god, the god of the sky. It was one of the last such temples...More

The bronze statue is that of St. John the baptist and sarcophagi the Bishops of Split. The vault is coffered and impressive.

Pay attention to the faces on the ceiling. No two are alike. Emperor Diocletian associated hiself with the God Jupiter, so I would have throught this temple would be larger. Nevertheless,it is very interesting and well preserved.

There is really nothing here to get excited about. It is small and rather plain and is hard to find. A combination that says it is not worth your time.

It is always great to be enclosed by antiquity. Sometimes antiquity becomes overgrown by modernity like here. Enjoy if you can.

As per Roman ruins, this is definitely not one of the best temples or ruins I have seen in my life. Small, hard to see if there are many tourists, and despite there are several details in the building, with so many people, it is...More

The ceiling alone is worth the entry fee. This tiny temple is filled with amazing stone work. There is a brief summary of the history of the site, but it's just a good building to discover on your own.

This temple is in the very center of town in the middle of the Palace but can be easy to miss if you're not looking for it or are not wandering around the Palace in its direction.
