Why to visit Roman Foram

The forum is huge and brimming with information The forum is enormous, with many stunning ruins. Here's a list of the sites you should visit to gain a full sense of Roman history:

1. Saturn Temple: The first temple built on the Roman Forum was dedicated to Saturn, the supreme god. It may be found at the western end of the Forum, at the foot of the Capitoline Hill, and is distinguished by its eight weathered yet distinctive columns.

2. Antoninus Pius Temple: Located on the Via Sacra, Emperor Antoninus Pius built this ancient Roman temple in 141 AD. It was first dedicated to Faustina, his deceased and deified wife, and then to him after his death.

3. Aulus Postumius Albus Regillensis, the Roman dictator, built the Temple of Castor and Pollux in 484 BC. It was built in honour of the Dioscuri (the twins Castor and Pollux) following their legendary victory in the Battle of Lake Regillus, where the Romans defeated the Latins for the first time.

4. Vesta Temple: The oldest sacred building on the Forum, a small circular east-facing temple with Corinthian columns. Vesta, the goddess of the hearth (domestic), home, and family, was honoured. In Ancient Rome, the temple was a treasured structure because it held the Sacred Fire, which was guarded by the Vestals.
