Columns of Egypt are something fascinating, so can you imagine what size was Temple in Ephessus when it was described with following words;
"I have seen the walls and Hanging Gardens of ancient Babylon, the statue of Olympian Zeus, the Colossus of Rhodes, the mighty work of the high Pyramids and the tomb of Mausolus. But when I saw the temple at Ephesus rising to the clouds, all these other wonders were put in the shade"
Antipater of Sidon

for a comparison with Egyptian columns
'Ipet-Resyt' Temple of the God Amon - the Temple of Luxor
the size

Temple in Ephessus was presented as round, oval and squared.

The Temple of Diana at Ephesus from the Seven Wonders of the World, Seven Wonders of the World, 1614

This is oldest 16th century graphic, temple is built in Yonic manner meaning oval or roundish which is tipical for temples dating back to stone age.
Temple was destroyed and rebuild 3 times in total 
before its eventual destruction in 401.
I believe it was very large, most likely oval or maybe even egg-shaped like those from much older times.

 They have been so massive that people looked like ants in comparison.
The Temple of Artemis or Artemision (Ἀρτεμίσιον), also less known as the Temple of Diana, it was a Hellenic temple dedicated to the goddess Artemis and is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It was located in Ephesus (near the modern town of Selçuk in present-day Turkey). Only foundations and sculptural fragments of the latest of the temples at the site remain.

So I went checking on Google and I found contours of round and oval temples
deeply indented in the soil.

Groves in the earth are not seen nowhere else around Ephessus, it was just this place.
Oval shape seem to be the largest and maybe it was as it seem, one round facing east and elegantly integrated into oval structure...
In any case, this building was extremely large and heavy, so heavy that it sunked the soil at that spot.

One of the major tasks of the Christian Church was to destroy all evidence of Female Masonry
for two reasons, they were larger and more grandious that anything else built later.
Most of the Seven wonders was dedicated to Goddesses built by Matriarchal societies.

And not just any women.
The first sanctuary (temenos) antedated the Ionic immigration by many years, and dates to the Bronze Age. Callimachus, in his Hymn to Artemis,
attributed it to the

This is what is left, one single column sticking out "erected".

Their heads chopped off
their temples desecrated
their legacy tossed into oblivion and rewriten


Everything was roundish, oval, curvy, spiraly
Just look at the rods of power Medusa had, a spirals...

When you see this shapes you know she was here, she made this.

I assume that other temple lays beneath this crusaders castle,
victoriously brought up over her grave.

This is second posibility of the outlook of the squared temple.

16th century version

This is the usuall picture you get when you go searching for this one
of the Seven Wonders of the World

18th century version.

In 1705 Fischer Von Erlach began to prepare a completely different from all known Treaty. Published in 1721 in Vienna, with the title of "Essay of historic architecture", represents a decisive and influential contribution to the new problems that will raise the illustration. 

The Treaty, with texts in German and French, It consisted of a series of large sheets depicting different sequences of buildings of architectural history. 

The influence of the Treaty of Fischer von Erlach in the 18th century is going to be huge, providing architects and theorists other different from previous knowledge of antiquity !!!

Luckily ,there are coins from these times that speak louder then words.
This one is oldest of the 2
it is writen in greek and Diana on the left is writen as Thene.
Dea is writen as Thea ,means God.

This one is late Roman with Dianas name.

I'm not done with Ephesus, there is way more then we know of.
Picture bellow is showing something that was facing coloseum.

in the interview with Ephesians we found out that inhabitants are
'taking many naps while waiting for the Goddess to return'.

and their high expectations
'so that we can all magickly turn into guardians we used to be'.
