The Parthenon: A Western Architectural Marvel

The Parthenon was consecrated as a temple to the goddess Athena on the Athenian Acropolis on this day in 432 BC. Begun in 447 BC, the completed structure — considered the zenith of Doric Order architecture — has endured various occupations by invading empires and survives as a symbol of Classical Greece, democracy, and Western Civilization.
