Greek and Roman architecture are amazing structures that have so much detail that it just adds to their beauty. For instance Greek architecture is absolutely astonishing because they were able to build the amazing structures and many of them are still standing to this very day. The Greeks were very particular when it came to their architecture and when they built the Temple of Parthenon for instance they used a Doric temple. One of the reasons that they decided to use a Doric pillar is because it is one of the sturdiest of all the pillars that were available to them during that time period. Greeks also had other pillars such as the Ionic and the Corinthian pillars (olsjschool.net n.d.). The difference between these types of pillars is that the Ionic was built with more elegance in mind rather than sturdiness. These pillars were really not meant to hold the weight and they were not meant to stand for hundreds of years like the Doric pillars do. The Temple of Artemis was built with Ionic pillars and it is basically in ruins because of time
