the temple of poseidon, where the four winds of the earth meet. Feb 22, 2009
In the ancient greek mythology the gods of the winds are: boreas, the god of the north winds; notus, the god of the south winds; eurus, the god of the east winds and zephyrus. Together in a point where the four winds meet, a spectacular temple was built in the edge of a cliff, in the very edge of the land of greece.

the temple of poseidon, the god of the seas.

but now, 90% of the temple remaind as it was destroyed.

some people dont like the temple, but in all the ruins in athens and near athens, this was the temple that i felt the myths and magic of ancient greece.

i went to the temple 2x when i was in athens and always in sunset in august 2006. The last visit was the most amazing thing, i had goosebumps all over me. The sky was a mix of blue, orange, pink and black.

i swam naked in the secret beach below it - alone, i know poseidon, the god of the sea would protect me.

and in twilight, the most magical thing i had ever seen, flocks of seagulls were circling around the temple, round and round and round against a backgound of magical light.
