“Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu
Buddhist, Sufi, or zen. Not any religion
or cultural system.

I am not from the East or the West,
not out of the ocean or up from the ground,
not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all.

I do not exist, am not an entity in this world or in the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any origin story. Continue reading

The sun comes shining as I was strolling
The wheat fields waving and the dust clouds rolling
The fog was lifting a voice come chanting
This land was made for you and me

At the highest point of the city there is a temple devoted to the goddess Athena, built around 525 BC. This is the first and only temple in the Doric style that was built in Anatolia in the Archaic Era. The standing columns we see today were not there when the city was founded. From the columns that were recovered in the excavation, original moulds were made and the columns were made accordingly, The ones we see standing today are the ones produced later. Some the friezes above the columns were taken to the Boston Museum in 1881, while others were taken to the Louvre Museum and some pieces are taken to İstanbul Museum of Archaeology. In the friezes, a myth related to ancient hero Heracles is depicted.

A second temple to be discovered was a Byzantine Basilica. (the 4th century AD)
