PostSubject: Delphi, an Archaeological Site in Greece   13/11/2010, 10:28 pm

Delphi, a modern town in Greece is a famous archaeological site inthe valley of Phocis. Delphi is located in the center of Greece, on theterraces that border the slope of Mount Parnassus. It also includes theSanctuary of Apollo, a place where the ancient Oracle once lived. Itwas the place of the Delphic Oracle in Greek mythology when the maingod of worship was Apollo. It is a site that is a must view for thosewho have always been influenced by the charm of the Oracle. The historyshows that Delphi was populated during the Neolithic era. During 100B.C., it became an important center for religious and politicalactivities. It is interesting to know that the exact function of theOracle cannot be found in any of the prehistoric documents; it is onlythe importance of Delphi that is documented well.Delphi of Greece was considered to be the center of the world andthe Oracle was a religious naval that was famous for predicting thefuture. Since the Oracle could predict the future, most of the kingsand common people used to consult the Oracle on matters that were ofgreat importance. These matters would include things like small household disputes to big war conditions. Because of its future tellingcapabilities, it created a name and a reputation of its own not just inGreece but in the entire world. Some of the common sites to visit inDelphi is the famous temple of Apollo, The Tholos, the Delphi Museumand the Charioteer of Delphi. The drive to Delphi from Athens is almostone and a half hour. One can reach Delphi by air or road.
