The reconstructions, in this section, give an idea of how these ancient temples might have appeared to ancient eyes.
Ancient peoples liked to decorate their buildings and temples with bright colours. Take the Parthenon, in Athens, for example; nowadays we have this vision of those beautiful columns and fabulously carved marbles showing the bare stone, which appeals to our modern aesthetic. However, in ancient times the bare stone was hidden from view because it was all painted in the most brilliant colours.
