History: The Parthenon

The Parthenon is one of the most recognizable ancient monuments in Greece and around the world!  The temple was first built in 5th Century BC in honor of the Greek Goddess Athena Parthenos.  It was built on top of the highest hill in Athens named the Acropolis, and used as a place of worship for Athena.

The original Parthenon was built out of limestone but the one that stands there today is made out of marble.  It was rebuilt between 447 and 438 BC by two architects Callicrates and Ictinus, and a great sculptur Pheidias.
