"Architectural Beauty"

The Temple of Hephaestus is located on the hill of Agoraios Kolonos, just half a kilometer away from the city center. The temple was built in the doric order, a style of architecture of ancient Greece, and is significant for its geometrical arrangement of pillars and columns. Inaugurated around 415 BCE, this beautiful white marble structure is dedicated to the god of metal working, Athena Ergane. The temple used to once be a market for clay pottery and metals, but since its construction it has undergone many changes following years of wars, invasions and the resulting fall of monarchy.
