The Temple of Zeus in the center of Athens. Begun in the 6th century BC, it was not completed until the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD. It consisted of 104 Corinthian columns of which only 15 remain standing today.

A 16th column was blown down during a gale in 1852 and is still lying where it fell.

Two more of the remaining standing columns with the Acropolis in the background.

This photo shows the scale of the Temple of Zeus. It's truly Zeusian.

Within walking distance of the Temple of Zeus we came upon the marble stadium to be used as one of the venues for the 2004 Summer Olympics. If you look hard, you can see the olympic rings in the background being installed.
