  • A temple dedicated to the Greek god of weaponsmithing and industry (fire, metalworking, sculpture, etc)
  • Largely unchanged since it was first built, 2.5 millennia ago
  • Tickets to the Ancient Agora will allow you to see the temple
Largely unchanged since it was built back in 450 BC, the Temple of Hephaestus is a stunning site to visit. 

Located in the Ancient Agora of Athens, the temple was originally dedicated to Hephaestus, the Greek god of smithing. Today, it’s a fantastic historical example of a Doric peripteral temple (i.e. surrounded by a portico with columns) and remains largely intact.
