Temple Of Hephaestus - Review

The Temple of Hephaestus or the Hephaestieon is the temple dedicated to the Greek god of metal. This impressive structure with several columns was built in 415 BC. What is most impressive about the temple is the fact that it is one of the most well-preserved monuments from the ancient period. The columns are sturdy as well as beautiful and even the roof has weathered the odds and stayed strong over many years. This temple also overlooks the famous point of Agora of Athens.

It seems only apt that this enduring structure pays homage to the god of strength. Although this Greek God of metal was cursed with a physical deformity, yet he stands out in the Greek mythology for building the legendary shield of Achilles. The best time to visit is in the morning but it looks equally impressive throughout the day. A definite must visit while in Greece make it a point to see it just to stand there and imagine how glorious ancient Greece must have looked.

Temple Of Hephaestus, Athens Reviews

  • Amazing piece of ancient history!!! Very well preserved. Is definitely worth to see it. Surprisingly there were not many people by the time I got there, around 2 pm. It's normally full at that time. So I suggest you to go early and avoid the mass of tourists

  • Tample that survived in the best condition. Besded in very busy turist area of Athens. Night streets are amazing around there.

  • One of the few conserved buildings in Athens. Nice view of the Parthenon.

  • Don't skip this place! It is a very well maintained temple from the old Greek times. Most of the original structure is still standing and gives a good representation of what temples and structures looked like. It is Amazon to stand near it and just think about how long that building has been standing.

  • One of the most beautiful and well maintained ancient Greek temples at the lively historical centre of Athens city. Good photo opportunities from the areas around the temple. Picturesque scenery, it has also pretty nice lighting during the evening hours.
