Temple of hephaestus

Oh, the monuments in Athens! In the majestic Agora of Athens, always under the watchful eye of the Acróplolis, rises the Hephaestion, a beautiful, marble temple with Doric columns. It is located in the Agora, as I said before. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, the Agora of Athens used to be the main center of political activity, the social capital. Strolling through the Agora is a joy because it's like traveling back in time when things were very different: Gods, laws, philosophers, great temples, mythology was alive. The Hephaestion is also known as Theseion and this is why it is believed that the bones of the legendary Greek hero Theseus lie in it. But we are left with the common name, Hephaestion, where people worshiped Hephaestus, the god of fire and the forge, as well as the god of artisans, blacksmiths, metals, sculptors and metallurgy, and Athena. As you can see, its structure is well preserved. Actually, it is one monuments which has been the most preserved over the years. We also show an overview of the Agora and of the Acropolis seen from this beautiful temple. ENJOY.
