11a 143 rome ruins of the Temple of Castor and Pol

Author 'Ninik' (Id 140445 ) : Roman Forum - Ruins of the Temple of Castor and Pollux. The temple housed the statues of Castor and Pollux considered the guardians of freedom of Rome. The origin of this temple coincides with the birth of the Roman Republic. Livy reports that 5ES Ave. BC a temple was built to thank the Beaver Lake Regillus victory against the Latins and dedicated to the Dioscuri. According to the legend passed on by Plutarch, the two heroes would come to help the Roman troops in the form of intrepid riders and the original temple was built on the site where Castor and Pollux did their horses drink from the fountain of Juturna and announced the victory of Rome on the last king of ancient Rome. The introduction of the worship of Castor and Pollux was probably made through the Greeks present in southern Italy but the love that the Romans had for horses comes from the Etruscans.

Thank you for this reminder of history that is sometimes lacking in some photos. If I could afford, I would have blurred the very white part behind the first column, it attracts attention because almost located at a key location. : 14: The framing is superb and shows us the grandeur of the building.
