Ihad no idea this was in Nashville. A full scale replica of the Athenian original Parthenon, located in Athens, Greece.  We didn’t get the chance to see the original when we were in Greece so it was a nice bonus to get to look inside.

Originally built for Tennessee’s 1897 Centennial Exposition, this replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece serves as a monument to what is considered the pinnacle of classical architecture. The plaster replicas of the Parthenon Marbles found in the Naos are direct casts of the original sculptures, which adorned the pediments of the Athenian Parthenon dating back to 438 B.C. The originals of these powerful fragments are housed in the British Museum in London.
