Parthenon, Athens Surviving Glory Of Ancient Greece

Submitted by • January 30, 2019 www.arounddeglobe.com

Standing gracefully for the past 2,500 years, defying all the challenges imposed by the time, the Parthenon demonstrates the brilliance of the Greek architecture. This imposing monument was dedicated to the goddess Athena, Athens’ patron deity & was standing atop the ‘Acropolis of Athens’. Throughout its long life, the ‘Parthenon’ has played many roles. It was built initially as a ‘Greek temple’ which, later on was converted into a treasury of the ‘Delian League’. It was converted into a ‘Christian church’ during the ‘Roman’ era & after the ‘Ottoman’ conquest, the ‘Parthenon’ was turned into a grand mosque
