In this article, it is mention that in Ancient Greece, the Greek life was ruled by Religion. The temples were created big and beautiful places in Greece because of their strong religion. Architecture in Ancient Greece was magnificent. Greek had three types of architectural systems; Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian. They each required different structures and for different use. ("Acropolis." Ancient Greece. University Press Inc, n.d. 2013-2012)

The Parthenon itself is replaced an older temple in Athena, historians call it the Pre-Parthenon or the Old Parthenon that was destroyed in the Persian invasion of 480 BC.
