The Temple of Castor and Pollux (Temple of Castor and Pollux) is located in the Roman Forum, originally built by the Roman Republic to win the Battle of Lake Reggios (495 BC) and defeat the Latin League. Castor and Pollux were the twins of the ancient Greek mythology Zeus and Queen Leda of Sparta, who were introduced to Rome from Greek culture. According to legend, Castor and Pollux appeared on the battlefield as two knights helping the Republic. After the victory of the battle, the war dictator of the Roman Republic, Olus Posthumus Albus Regilensis, built this temple to thank the son of Zeus. Later, the temple was repeatedly used for other purposes, and was abandoned in the fourth century AD. After the 15th century, the temple only had three pillars.
The temples of Castor and Pollux are located in the heart of the Roman Forum, and although they are now left with three vertical columns, they are not visible on the Forum and still have fine carvings on top of the columns. Castor and Polix were the twins of Zeus, the two brothers known as Gemini. The temple was built for the battle of Lake Rigilos and the brothers are said to have helped Rome win. The Romans built a temple for this, even setting down the Gemini Festival.
The outside architecture is OK, very historical research value of the ruins, you can see.
Castor and Pollux temples are the kinsmen of ancient Greek mythology and are very historical sites to see.
The legend of the Gemini in ancient Greek mythology: Castle and Pollux are brothers who love each other, but the former have their lives and the latter have their immortal lives. After Castor's death, Polix prayed to his father Zeus, hoping to bring him back to life, even to give up his immortality. Zeus was moved, and arranged for the brothers to take turns living on the ground and underworld, one round a day. Thus, the brother divides immortality and death.
