The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

This temple is located in Turkey.

The original temple was believed to be destroyed by Herostratus on the same day that Alexander the Great was born
July 21, 356 BC.  People in Maceonia believed that Artemis did not save the temple because of this.

Later, when Alexander conquered Asia Minor, he helped rebuild the temple.
