Don’t Forget To Visit The Temple Of Parthenon While You Are In Acropolis

Ancient Greeks were masters when it came to architecture and carving beauty in rocks. Soon after the victory of the Greeks over the Persians, the later part of the 5th century BC saw the Greeks coming forward with the principles of democracy. They established a prominent hold over many city-states.

The monuments of Acropolis have left a mark that is to be seen over architecture in all countries of the world, and for all times to come. The precision with which the beauty of Acropolis is drawn is symbolic of the religions followed by the ancient Greeks. Many legends regarding the city came up in the temple.

Greek statesman Pricles found his ideas and ambitions in the hands of artists and particularly the famous sculptor Pheidias. Together, they managed to change the face of the society. Acropolis became home to      several monuments that were to go down the annals of history as significant ones.

Efforts to restore the lost glory  of Acropolis were initiated in 1975. They are headed towards completion now. The restoration was to undo the effects of pollution, decay in the course of time, attrition from military intervention, and failed attempts at restoration in the past.

Acropolis virtually finds itself perched on a group of rocks pushing it 156m above sea level. For a long time, it  served ht the purpose of a fortress designed for shielding the royalty and Greek gods from the outside world. Acropolis is the seat of several monuments of historical significance, particularly the Parthenon.
