Temple of Vesta

Remains of the Temple of Vesta in the Roman Forum in Rome, Italy. The circular temple was built next to the House of the Vestal Virgins, with its entrance facing east to enforce the connection between the rising sun and the Sacred fire of Vesta, which was linked with the fortunes of the city. The Vestal Virgins would serve 30 years, seeing that the holy fire was not allowed to burn out, while also performing other duties and rituals. The temple was also used to store sacred objects such as the statue of Pallas Athena, known as the Palladium.
