Temple of Jupiter
The Temple of Jupiter has a rectangular base and is placed on a lifted podium. Earlier, there was a porch with six pillars in front of it. The portal is decorated with reliefs and the arch has a barrel-like shape. In the late Antique period it was redecorated to a baptistery. Under the building there is a crypt dedicated to St. Thomas. At the beginning of the 13th century, a baptistery font was set in the former temple. One of the plates bears the oldest medieval stone sculpture of a European king assumed to be Petar Krešimir IV or Zvonimir. The baptistery has a Meštrović Art Nouveau sculpture of St. John the Baptist, after whom the baptistery is named.
