Parthenon, Athens Overview

Parthenon is a temple of the ancient city of Acropolis. It was dedicated to the goddess Athena. Completed in 438 BC, it is an important building of classical Greek history.

At its current position, Athenians had started the construction of a building which was dedicated to goddess Athena. However, it was destroyed by the Persians in around 500 BC and most of its ruins were utilised to construct the current Parthenon. The temple's main function was to give proper shelter the statue of Athena that was made by Pheidias out of gold and ivory.
