photoblog image Temple of Divus Romulus

Temple of Divus Romulus

In the Roman Forum, opposite the House of the Vestal Virgins is the circular Temple of Romulus, built in the 4th century AD. The building is mostly intact due to its incorporation into the church Santi Cosma e Damiano. The large well-preserved bronze door is original. There is still a debate going on as to who this temple was dedicated to. For now it is assumed that this temple was dedicated to the son of Maxentius, who died young in 307 BC

You're helping me to see all these famous ruins differently, SAVO, just as I knew you would. This is just beautiful! Does it really register how old this is???
Wow!!! I stay without voice (if we can say like that). Beautiful door.
A+ VAL smile
I have to tell you, Savo, I am waking up in the morning looking forward to seeing your daily offering! What with your series, imagerf`s trip, and lurch`s safari...I feel as though I am having a wonderful holiday myself. This is another stunning image. (:o)

This is a magnificent entrance SAVO. No wonder he died young with all those Vestal Virgins to tempt him!
