7 The temple as it appeared in 1880.
8 Here you can see the crooked columns. All the statuary was removed British scoundrels in the mid-19th century and carted off to London to be displayed in the British Museum along with the statuary they had stolen outright from the Acropolis in Athens. One more example of Europeans screwing the poor Greeks. Give them back, Brits.
9 The north side is the original entrance to the temple.
