The temple is situated close to the one dedicated to Cybele, in the area South of the Caesareum. The original building had a simple entrance, leading to a cella with eight internal piers. It was then changed and expanded in Roman times. Among the many statues and statuettes found during the excavations, ten represented Aphrodite, suggesting a dedication to the goddess.
