The art and architecture of the ancients is something to be wondered about. The feeling of awe and wonder when visiting one of these ancient structures can only be understood by one who has experienced this. These structures have withstood the test of time for several centuries because they were built to last.
Also, the art works which have survived from those times appear beautiful and elaborate. All this appears to show that more people among the ancients focused more of their time and energy in thinking about art. This can be contrasted with the modern obsession with technology and mind-numbing “entertainment”.
Such an attitude was pervasive in most parts of the world and the results can still be seen today.
