We report photometric follow-up observations of WASP-135b obtained using the 1.23-m telescope at Calar Alto Observatory and 1.00-m telescope at TuBITAK National Observatory during the 2017 and 2018 observational seasons. Eight new transit light curves of WASP-135b were analyzed with JKTEBOP code. The ratio of the planet radius to radius of host star, fractional radius of host star, and orbital inclination of WASP-135b were found to be 0.138 +/- 0.002, 0.181 +/- 0.008 and 82.44 +/- 0.64 degrees, respectively. Planetary radius of WASP-135b was derived from transit parameters to be 1.075 +/- 0.150 RJ. The transit ephemeris of WASP-135b was also updated using the maximum likelihood method (MLM). 165 well-known hot Jupiters (HJs) were selected from the Exoplanet Data Explorer database and the classification of these HJs together with WASP-135b, based on their equilibrium temperatures and Safronov numbers, is discussed.
