The temple of Apollo in Delphi, Greece
© Donika Georgieva

One of the most typical and memorable buildings, which we find today is the ancient temple. It is the home of the god. Its entrance is always to the East, so that the first sun rays may light up the statue of the god, to whom the temple is dedicated. The most skilful masters in building temples were the ancient Greeks. Initially they made them of wood. At a later stage the wood was replaced by marble and thus some splendid masterpieces of art reached us.
