Check out the circular altar where his body was burned after he was stabbed to death by a conspiracy of senators, including his adopted son, Brutus of Et tu Brute.

Julius Caesar's body was burned after the impassioned speech by Mark Antony made famous by Shakespeare's Julius Caesar....

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears; I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones; So let it be with Caesar.....

There is not much left of the Julius Caesar Temple. Remnants of the brick and rubble and part of the block of the porch where the circular altar for his cremation was built.
