The Temple of Castor and Pollux was an ancient Roman temple in Forum Romanum. The temple was built in 495 BC and was originally erected for the victory at the Battle of Lake Regillus, but was then honoured for Castor and Pollux, the twin sons of Zeus and Leda.

Together with the rest of Forum Romanum, the temple is a popular tourist attraction in Rome. Only three columns and the foundations remain.
