Located on the north side of the hill Erechtheion temple is the second largest at the Acroplois. It is a to multiple gods and mythical heroes consecrated holy city building complex. It is named after the mythical king Erechtheus, whose palace stood there and have been revered there as well. In the east stood an altar of Athena and the old wooden cult statue of the goddes. To the west, located a little deeper, there was the altar of Poseidon. The best-known part of the Erechtheion is the Koren hall on the southern side facing the Parthenon, where female figures (Caryatids) replace columns. In the crypt below lie the Athenian ancestors, there were also a number of gods worshiped.

Hello Achim ,
the grandeur of the Temple is well portrayed with the Caryatids being of particular interest in a nice clear photograph.

Hallo Achim. Hier zeigt sich das klassische Griechenland mit einer berühmten Figurengruppe. Wer hier vorbeikommt muss einfach fotografieren. Ich mag das Foto,... und es erinnert mich an meinen Aufenthalt dort vor etlichen Jahren.
Viele Grüße, Wolfgang.

The stone walls are helping to frame the temple. The point of view is showing a double perspective of the ruins of the temple. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.

Bonjour, cher Achim,
Très beau témoignage d'un Temple Grec bénéficiant encore de splendides cariatides, des colonnes rudentées, fronton triangulaire, superbe !
Un grand merci pour ce partage.

Very attractive greek ruins!
The most famous details of them (those female-shaped columns) are wonderful, but I had just seen them separated from the whole building (pictures focusing on them only)! It's nice to see them like this!
TFS - congrats,

I was fortunate enough to visit the Acropolis when I was in Greece last year and took a similar photo. Good exclusion of the throngs of tourists which made photography at this locale difficult. Excellent sharpness and natural looking color and saturation. Tfs!

the wonderful Caryatids stand out elegantly in the side of the temple, under a soft light and a nice shades.
I like the proposed visual angle, from an efficient POV, with which you've created a powerful and attractive composition, perfectly executed.

The right side of the temple seems to be entirely reconstructed. This is the first time I am seeing a picture of Erechtheion. The light brings in excellent details!
