The Parthenon is an ancient temple dedicated to the Greek goddess Athena. It is situated on the excavated site of the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. Construction started in 447 BC and was tentatively completed around 438 BC, although decorative parts of the temple continued to evolve until 432 BC. The building has had many uses over the centuries, including that of a treasury, a Christian church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, an Ottoman mosque and an ammunition dump.
