The current form of the Pantheon was actually built by Hadrian.
The dome was an inspiration for other domes, for example the Saint Peter's Basilica and the dome of Firenze.
This is a cross-section of the dome.
The Pantheon is situated on the Piazza della Rotonda. In the middle of the square there is a fountain, called the Pantheonfountain, which was built by pope Gregorius XIII in 1575.
The tempel dates of 27 BC. In 80 AD there was a fire in Rome which destroyed it. In 125 the building was rebuilt by Hadrian.
