Looking at the side and of the Temple of Erechtheion, situated on the north side of the Parthenon on the Acropolis. The temple now in ruins, was built between 421 and 406 BC., and the architect may have been Mnesicles. To the centre of the image is the much written about Caryatids’ (Maiden’s) Porch. The pillars in the form of sculpted maidens, support the roof. Photo shot in the morning sunlight; horizontal format. No people. Copy space. © Mano Chandra Dhas
