Canon 7D, 10-22mm Lens
This ancient roman temple is situated in the Ruins of Volubilis, near Meknes, Morocco in North Africa.
The Capitoline Temple was of great importance to civic life as it was dedicated to the three chief divinities of the Roman state, Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. Civic assemblies were held in front of the temple to beseech the aid of the gods or to thank them for successes in major civic undertakings such as fighting wars. The layout of the temple, is somewhat unusual and it has been suggested that it may have been built on top of an existing shrine. An inscription found in 1924 records that it was reconstructed in 218.
