The ancient Roman city of Aizanoi has one of Anatolia's best preserved Roman temples. The Temple of Zeus dates from the reign of Hadrian (117 CE - 138 CE). It was dedicated to Zeus and to the Anatolian fertility Goddess Cybele.
Aizanoi also has a Roman Bath, just across the road from the Temple of Zeus, a little further is the splendid Theater and Stadium. This is an unusual combination of the two, sharing the stage as one end of the stadium.
In town are several Roman bridges that serve as the foundations of the current bridges.
Another interesting building is a circular market building, next to the Roman Forum. It has some inscriptions detailing market prices.
