Owner description: This ancient Greek temple, located on the Acropolis and dedicated to Hephaistos, god of the forge, is one of the few temples to be almost entirely preserved.

Yes, everyone goes to the Acropolis to see the Parthenon, but do not miss this beautiful temple in the Agora, as it is one of the best-preserved in all of Greece.

Temple of Hephaistion is located in the old agora and is very well preserved. It was found under ground in early 1920’s, also there is a interesting museum very close. It is perfect for photographs for those that love to take nice photos.

This building is located at the Ancient Agora site. Records indicate this temple is the best kept up temple in Athens compared to the other temples. It is also located on a hill and has some nice views of the city
