The Parthenon is a former temple on the Athenian acropolis, Greece, dedicated to the goddess athena, whom the people of Athens considered their patroness. Construction began in 447 BCE, when the Athenian empire was at the peak of its power. It was completed in 438 BCE, although decoration of the building continued until 432 BCE. It is the most important surviving building of classical Greece, generally considered the zenith of the doric order. Its decorative sculptures are considered some high points of Greek art. The Parthenon is regarded as an enduring symbol of ancient Greece, democracy and western civilization, and one of the world’s greatest cultural monuments. To the Athenians who built it, the Parthenon, and other periclean monuments of the acropolis, were seen fundamentally as a celebration of Hellenic victory over the Persian invaders and as a thanksgiving to the Gods for that victory.
