Parthenon, this Doric’s order building from Classical ‘Pericles’ Greece was built from 447BC to 438BC and the fine decorations finally entered at 432BC from Ictinus and Kallikratis. The current Parthenon was built, on the top of the remains of the old one, to show the Greek’s appreciation to gods for their help over the Persians in 480BC. The Parthenon had many uses, in 6th century AD is served as a Christian church dedicated to Virgin Mary, in 1460 was a Muslim mosque and finally, on 1687 the Venetians bombed it and ruined most of the sculptures.
The temple is 70m length, 31m width and 13m high. The total number of pillars inside and outside was 108. Between those pillars, we can see figures on battles, Trojan war, Centaurs war, Giants war and Amazons wars.
