The Temple of Apollo, also known as Apollonion, (Greek: Ἀπολλώνιον, romanized: Apollṓnion) was a sanctuary which occupied the most important and prominent position in Ancient Greece. Located in Delphi, the temple was dedicated to Apollo, the god of music, harmony, light, and healing. The edifice with the partially restored colonnade visible today dates to the 20th century BC and, according to ancient accounts, five different temples were built throughout history. The famous oracle, the Pythia, (also known as the Oracle of Delphi) operated inside the temple, the location chosen, according to one tradition, due to a sacred chasm beneath the site emitting vapours, which were inhaled by the Pythia.
