The Temple of Olympian Zeus was completed in the second century AD by the Roman Emperor Hadrian which is nearly more than 600 years after its construction began. Ironically, it was ransacked shortly after and thus the massive temple was left in disrepair and quickly devolved into its current state of ruin. Presently, it is the largest temple in Greece and remains a popular tourist draw to this day. The Temple of Olympian Zeus, also known as the Olympieion or Columns of the Olympian Zeus, is a colossal ruined temple dedicated to Zeus, king of the Olympian gods. During the Roman periods it was renowned as the largest temple in Greece and housed one of the largest cult statues in the ancient world.
