Pantheon: An Overview
Introduction
When friends come to Rome in early summer to visit me, I like to take them to the Pantheon during thunderstorms and stand them beneath the opening of the feathery, perfectly proportioned dome as rain falls through the open roof against the ma
le floor and lightning scissors through the wild and roiled skies. The emperor Hadrian rebuilt the temple to honor gods no longer worshiped, but you can feel the
ute passion in that ardor in the Pantheon's grand and harmonious shape. I think gods have rarely been worshiped so well.

Pantheon, literally meaning of or to all gods, is one of the most famous, iconic structures in Rome, Italy. It is also the most important of all Roman temples that has been exceptionally well preserved amongst the ancient Roman structures. From the quotation above, it is easily discernible that the importance of the Pantheon in the modern world is not just limited to it being a classical architectural marvel; it is also a place of worship that has evolved with time, becoming a church in the seventh century. Therefore, my choice of the Pantheon lies in the fact that, unlike many similar classical structures, this grand temple has lived up to the true meaning of its name, becoming a place of worship for a different God but still hosting worshippers seeking benevolence. The structure, thus, is not only classical but a classic too in the truest sense for being able to withstand the ravages of time. The following sections
