This is my 1:1 scale reconstruction of the Parthenon on the acropolis in Athens, its widely considered to be the pinnacle of greek architecture and engineering and is one of the most recognizable ancient temples in western civilization. The current Parthenon was constructed between 447-432 BCE and dedicated to the goddess Athena, it survived intact up until 1687 when the ottoman ammo dump inside the temple was set off during the Venetian siege of Athens.

while i typically stick to roman monuments and such after building greek temples in AC origins and liking the colorful greek style i decided to go all out and do the Parthenon using what ive learned from them.This may be updated later on if i make more Greek temples to improve on it since im still learning the style, but at this time i dont plan on building the whole acropolis especially right after just getting done with the monster baths of trajan project.

Please enjoy hope it inspires more greek temple builds, you can use it however you like just give me credit for building it.

You know what they say about the Acropolis where the Parthenon is?


That that sentance is surprisingly hard to say.

But obscure references aside, that's a pretty neat build.

They say of the Acropolis where the Parthenon is is that there are no straight lines.

In real life, most buildings of this era tend to have a slight curve to them to account for the perspective of your eye.

This one definately has straight edges though lol
