Parthenon, Athens Overview

The Parthenon is an iconic landmark of Acropolis, Greece. This ancient temple is dedicated to Athena, one of the most cherished and famous Greek deities. Built in 447BC, it attracts tourists from around the world because of its perfect symmetry, towering columns, sculptures of Greek art, and more than 2000 years of rich history.

At the Parthenon, one can hire a guide to learn more about the structure's history, rulers, etc. Several information signs explain the same in detail. A classic architectural design, the Parthenon undoubtedly went through its share of destruction but has managed to stand the passage of several empires, periods, conflicts, historical events, etc. The renovation aims to restore the marble and more than 300 ancient stones on the structure. Originally a temple, the Parthenon has donned different roles over the years. It was converted to a church and then became a mosque after the Ottomans took over. It was bombarded during various wars, converted to the state treasury and today stands with authority and aura as a cultural symbol.
