we visited this place on a Sunday which was a less busy day. It a magnificent building with beautiful pillars even though you are not allowed to enter inside the temple. It is located in a serene place with trees and benches and the view of the acropolis and the centre from here is spectacular.

The Temple of Hephaestus is located in the Ancient Agora. It is the best preserved temple in Athens and makes for some great photos.
