The Parthenonis an ancient Greek temple dedicated to the goddess Athena Parthenos (Athena the Virgin), on the Acropolis in Athens. Although partly in ruins today, it remains a masterpiece of Greek architecture, especially of the Doric orderthe earliest and simplest of the classical Greek styles. The Parthenon is noted for its perfect simplicity of design and the harmony of its proportions. It was built from 447 to 432 bc.
Here are some pictures taken by family members and friend of the Parthenon throughout the years.
