One of Rome's most famous sites, the Pantheon is rich in culture, history, and engineering wonder that draws millions of tourists from all over the planet each year. Its name, which combines the Greek terms "Pan" and "Theon," which imply all gods, encapsulates its very initial motive. Built as a temple to the Roman gods, the incredible structure has stood for almost two millennia as an outstanding example of Roman craftsmanship and a testament to the technological wizardry of the ancient Romans.
The building's design is cylinder-shaped, with a portico supported by large Corinthian granite columns beneath an arching pediment. The rotunda, which is below a coffered concrete dome with an oculus showing the skies, is connected to the front porch by a rectangular portico.
Inside the Pantheon resides the statues of Greek gods including, a statue of Jupiter, a statue of Venus, and a statue of Mars representing and dedicated to the gods.
The Statue of Jupiter represents the king of all the gods in Roma mythology situated inside the Pantheon. The statue of Mars represents the god of forces and military for the safety and guardianship of the fallen Roman empire and the statue of Venus represents the goddess of love, fertility, beauty, and grace symbolizing prosperity and harmony within Romans.
Along with these, there are two tremendous statues of the Ceasur Agustus and Marcus Agrripa situated on the front porch on two corners.

Between 1861 and 1871, Victor Emmanual, a Sardinian King, successfully united all of Italy's sub-kingdoms to form one great nation. He was descended from the Casa Savoia, a great noble family started in A.D. 1003.
After passing away in 1878, King Victor Emmanuel received a burial in the Pantheon. "Father of the Fatherland," or Padre della Patria, is written on his tomb. It is a mystery that he was granted permission to be interred here. After Emmanuel captured Rome, Pope Pius IX refused to meet with him and never recognized his rule. Then he gave permission for him to be interred within the Catholic Pantheon, which puzzles many historians.
The rear left side of the Pantheon occupies Raphael's tomb situated under the statues of Mary Virgin holding baby Jesus craved by an artist, Lorenzetto. ILLE HIC EST RAFFAEL, TIMUIT QUO SOSPITE VINCI, RERUM MAGNA PARENS ET MORIENTE MORI is the inscription on his tomb. "Living, great nature feared he might outlive Her works; and, dying, fears herself may die," is how Alexander Pope translated it.
