 HUM 105 Week 5 Sacred Places

Prepare a PowerPoint presentation about a sacred place in mythology, for example, the Oracle at Delphi or the Mahabodhi Temple. This place should currently exist. Imagine this presentation as being like a travel guide book, letting someone from outside of the culture know what to expect to find if he or she were to visit the place of mythical value.

Create a 10- to 14-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with detailed speaker notes. The use of images is encouraged.

Include the following:




Where is the sacred site located and from which culture?


What are its mythological origins, history, and functions?


Describe any sacred objects and attributes associated with the deities and mythological origins of this place.


Compare this place to those that serve similar functions in other cultures, for example, mountain tops, temples, burial sites or memorials, and so on.


Discuss the relevance of this place and these objects in contemporary culture,  What significance do these places or things hold in the minds and emotions of the people? How do these places or things connect to mythological stories from that culture?


Format your images, citations, and references according to the appropriate course level APA guidelines.
