Ancient Temple of Aphaia, Aegina Island, Greece

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor and drone pilot georgelek1966 used a drone to give us this bird's eye view of an ancient temple on the Greek island of Aegina.  The temple of Aphaia was built in the fifth century BC on this island, which is one of the Saronic Islands.  The islands are located in the Saronic Gulf, an Aegean Sea inlet which lies between the Attica and Peloponnese Peninsulas. Aphaia was a Greek goddess, worshipped exclusively at this site, who was thought to be important to fertility as well as to the crop growing cycle.
