This temple is adjacent to the Parthenon and is well worth the visit. The temple featured the six columns of maidens as well as original iconic columns. Lots of photo opportunities on this wonderfully sunny December afternoon.

This place stands amidst the Acropolis as you walk to the footsteps....once you get up there, you have a spectacular view of the city of Athens. Almost next to Parthenon stands these beautiful statures and all the ancient history between the Greeks and Persians.
