    Ancient architecture has a certain aesthetic flair that delights both the eye and the mind. This is because of what these structures represent to modern civilization.

    These things are like, models of past excellence that form the core of what we know today.

    These creations are symbolic of humanity's ability to fashion all types of both organic and inorganic works of practical art.

    There is also a certain flair that most of the Eastern forms of architecture seem to possess...

    ...but that doesn't mean that Western buildings aren't just as beautiful.

    So I guess it would be safe to say that even the shortcomings of these creations are beautiful because they serve as an instructional source to help make things better.

    Architecture has a very poetic aesthetic of design, and this beauty can be artistically transferred to many types of art and science.

    However, one of the most important philosophical aspects of the aesthetic essence of ancient architecture is the fact that it is noble proof that we as a species can continue to learn and grow in all types of exciting new ways.

    Anyway, as we move forward into the future, it's comforting to know that someone has our back...

    ...and that someone is the profound beauty created by our ancestors.
