The Ruins of the Ancient City Kamiros, Rhodes Island, Greece

In prehistoric times the Mylantian gods, who taught mankind milling and kneading, were worshipped here; a Mycenaean necropolis have been excavated at Kalavarda, west of Kamiros. Findings from the Geometric period (8th c. BC) testify the existence of a temple dedicated to Athena on the Acropolis. It is known that the earthquake of 226 BC destroyed the Classical city and probably the Classical temple of Athena Kameiras.

It was in 2012 that I visited this place, and I had only a digital instamatic camera held in hand. We did not know about this place until we asked the hotel owner at where we stayed of interesting places we could visit in the island. As instructed we, we took the public bus from Rodes town and head off to this place.
