The Parthenon (ancient Greek: Παρθενών) is a temple built for the Greek goddess Athena, who was known as the goddess of wisdom, in the 5th century BC on the Acropolis of Athens.
Phidias, a great Athenian sculptor, and Ictinus and Callicrates, two famous architects, were responsible for the construction during the Golden Age of Athens (460–430 BC).

I believe The Parthenon is what inspired a half finished "thing" on top of Calton Hill in Edinburgh (where I stay)
