Living on a continent that has only had permanent buildings for a couple of centuries I haven't seen much ancient architecture, just a few ruins in Rome. The Colloseum was impressive but some more modern buildings like cathedrals (Notre Dame, York Minster) impressed me more. It does get you thinking about the lives of the people who build the place, really fires the imagination.
It is one of my passions in life.
When you stand next to something built thousands of years old, it is mind blowing.
Humans are amazing!
I'm fascinated by ancient architecture and history, as they provide such a powerful insight into the way that people lived thousands of years ago. I did my first trip to the UK and Europe a year ago and was overwhelmed by the ancient architecture and archaeological sites I encountered there. So many eras and civilisations have come and gone, yet these structures remain. I also loved visiting Angkor Wat in Cambodia (a thousand-year old temple complex), as well as various ancient historical sites when I've visited India.
Absolutely stunned by the mind-blowing engineering feats of ancient architecture. It's humbling.
I think ancient structures are amazing. I am especially impressed by Egyptian pyramids.
It is fascinating to have a small insight into ancient civilizations - The Great Wall, Stone Henge and Machu Pichu are some other curious structures that I find very inspiring.

I haven't seen any ancient architecture in person, but I look at them in images and think, "Wow, imagine the peoplepower that went into constructing that!". And they didn't have the kinds of technology we have today. It's pretty impressive.

Of course I am , the vision, the context of the times and the tools that they had to build them make them in my eyes that more impressive. In this day and age our buildings appear somewhat unimaginative in comparison.
Yes, I'm quite fascinated with ancient architecture. I many time wonder how they built them and how long it took. Some of these structures are located in places where those ancient people had no advanced tools (that we know of).
Yes I am! People were so resourceful and the engineering was incredible. Makes modern day architecture and engineering look like a walk in the park!
They're just fascinating!

Best time I've had was walking down pathway, bent over in half, inside Cheops' Pyramid, Giza, Egypt, then walked out on 14th level, & climbed down the outside, to the ground!

Next day, thigh muscles hurt so much!

Then at Teotihuacan, Mexico, climbed up to top, & back down again, of Sun Pyramid! Atop, could see for miles!
Then, did same for Moon Pyramid, looking down the 2 miles long, Avenue of the Dead.

Marvellous opportunities' much appreciated!
