Travel and Explore the Walhalla Temple in Donaustauf, Bavaria

I am trying to remember how many times did I visited this famous Walhalla Temple in Donaustauf, a small town near Regensburg in Bavaria, Germany. This is like the Parthenon in Greece. I love historical monuments like this especially if it depicts the great act and work of the people during those times. I have below some pictures of Walhalla Temple and a little information about it.
Off topic; do you have any idea what does hgh stands for? I guess I got it now. Simply click that link and you will also know about it. Lastly, I remembered that I have been in Walhalla Temple for four times already. I love this place!

Thanks to HB for taking these pictures. This is the front side of the temple facing the Danube River.

The Walhalla is a hall of fame for “laudable and distinguished Germans” resp. “famous personalities in German history – politicians, sovereigns, scientists and artists” “of the German tongue”[1], housed in a neo-classical building above the Danube River east of Regensburg, in Bavaria, Germany. It was conceived in 1807 by Crown Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria, when he had become King, and was built between 1830 and 1842 by the architect Leo von Klenze. The Walhalla hosts about 65 placques and 130 busts of persons, covering 2000 years of history; as the oldest person honored is Arminius, victor in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in the year 9.
