photoblog image Tempio di Saturno I

Tempio di Saturno I

The Temple of Saturn is a monument to the agricultural deitySaturn that stands at the western end of the Forum Romanum in Rome, Italy.

 

Gradual collapse has left nothing but the remains of the front portico standing, but the eight surviving columns and partially intact pediment(displaying the inscription:

''Senatus Populusque Romanus incendio consumptum restituit'', meaning "The Senate and People of Rome restored what fire had consumed"

represent one of the iconic images of Rome's ancient architectural heritage.

I do enjoy these Roman ruin images we see on SC. I hope to visit an old Roman city soon. Nice one Savo.

I especially like how you got all 8 columns in this tight crop, SAVO. Bravo.
Very nicely captured Savo! Great POV.
It is incredible thinking how this city might have appeared to those who visited it.

What a great shot. Amazing it survived, it looks so fragile.
It's good that this much has survived for so long, and with the fantastic inscriptions and carving intact.

Looks as if they're going to have to do some weeding soon though.
very nicely captured indeed
