Photographer's Note

This is Capitoline Temple in the Roman city of Volubilis.
It was probably built on top of an earlier structure. It was dedicated to the three chief divinities of the Roman state, Jupiter, Juno and Minerva.
An inscription found in 1924 says that it was constructed in 218. Some restoration was done in 1955 and more in 1962 as can be seen by the bricks used in the columns. To see that in better detail go to the large version.
The stork looks like it could be its guardian.
