One can never miss the greatest mummified building of the world named Pantheon which is positioned on Piazza della Rotonda. Today this is a popular structure of the city of Rome and was built in around 125 AD during the reign of Emperor Hadrian. The temple replaced an earlier building constructed by Agrippa. In later centuries the Pantheon became the final resting place of artists and kings, including Raphael, Vittorio Emmanuele. Nowadays the Pantheon is a sacred church and used for occasional services. One can feel the seclusion while entering into the church. The church includes a type of Spanish steps which is very beautifully constructed. The place serves as a venue for concerts and poetry reading, as it‘s free to enter, and is usually open during daylights hours. Pantheon is located in the heart of the Centro storico and one can relish the beautiful moments of a scenic walk. This place is known as the major tourist spot and a popular wedding venue. Oculus is a round opening in the centre of dome which is 27 feet in diameter and open to the sky.
