The Presence of the Golden Ratio and the Golden Spiral throughout the World

When looked at from the front, the shape of the Parthenon appears to resemble a golden rectangle. This is interesting as construction of it had completed in 438 B.C.E but it wasn’t documented by the Greeks until 300 B.C.E. Many theories for this include that, as it is present in nature, the golden ratio is aesthatically pleasing to the human eye.

 

As seen above, the Taj Mahal is also known to form a golden rectangle.
