“Must see!”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

First glimpsed the temple from Parthenon. It is still intact and the best example anywhere. Spent time walking around it and touring the entire adjacent ancient Agora as well as the Museum to the east. More interesting than Pantheon itself.

“Do not miss!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

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.

“2nd Highlight of Athens”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

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.
