The sheer magnificence and grandeur of the location strikes you. God Apollo had chosen the best spot to build his temple. Below the site, a valley ringed by mountains, provides breathtaking views from any location within the site.
According to the myth, Zeus released two eagles. The one flew east and the other one flew west.
They both met over Delphi, determining that the centre of the world was there. A temple dedicated to god Apollo was built there in the 7th c BC.
The Temple of Apollo housed the great Oracle of Delphi, the world’s greatest source of income for a thousand years.
The oracle of Apollo became a religious centre where common people and kings alike, came to consult “Pythia”, the priestess of the sanctuary. By the side of the Pythia stood the priests, and interpreted her vague and wild cries, and put them into ordered language.
Above the entrance to the temple it reads ‘Know Thyself’ and ‘Nothing in Excess’. These sayings were read and pondered upon by all of the great kings, warriors and noblemen who came here for advice. The true wisdom of the Oracle lies not within the words of the Oracle’s priestess, but within the walls of the temple itself.
