Temple of Olympian Zeus, Athens


While not quite as impressive as the Acropolus, the Temple of Olympian Zeus is certainly a lot quieter. It took a long time to build, it was started around 6BC, and was only finished during the reign of Hardien in 2CE, nearly 800 years later.

The columns are 17m tall, that is approximately 6 floors to give perspective of how tall it is.
