The Temple of Jupiter was one of three temples that stood to the west of the peristyle (main courtyard) within Diocletian's Palace in Split. The other two temples have been lost over time, and this temple survived by being turned into a baptistery by Christians.
Inside the temple / baptistery is a 12th century cruciform baptismal font adorned with carved panels depicting a Croatian ruler and carved knotwork devices. At the back, where a statue to Jupiter once stood, now stands a modern sculpture of John the Baptist.
The temple is a popular sight and tourist attraction in Split, entrance fees apply.
