Parthenon by Kevrekidis Parthenon by Kevrekidis
The Acropolis of Athens, Greece.
South view of the Parthenon.

The temple of Parthenon was dedicated to goddess Athena, protector of the Ancient city of Athens. Parthenon is one of the most famous buildings in the world. Its unique architecture inspired the architectural style of the western world. It was built in 438 BC during the Golden Era of Athens under Pericles administration by the architects Iktinos and Kalikrates. The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of Ancient Greece and of Athenian democracy and one of the world's greatest cultural monuments. This temple replaced an earlier temple in the same location, built before the Persian War and destroyed by the Persians in 480 BC. While much of the structure remains intact, the Parthenon has suffered considerable damage over the centuries.
