About Hotels in Temple of Hephaestus!

The Temple of Hephaestus, also known as the Hephaesteum or the Theseion, is an ancient Greek temple in Athens. It is located on the northwest side of the Agora and is dedicated to Hephaestus, the god of fire, forge and metalworking. It is one of the best preserved temples from antiquity and dates back to 449 B.C. The building was designed by Ictinus and Callicrates, two architects who were responsible for some of the most important monuments of Classical Athens.

The temple stands on a low platform with six columns at each end and thirteen along each side. The interior contains numerous sculptural decorations, depicting scenes from mythology, such as Dionysus’s marriage to Ariadne, Athena’s birth from Zeus’s head, Heracles slaying Geryon, and more.

At the entrance to the temple lies a monument to Alcamenes – son of architect Ictinus – with his work shown in relief around it. Inside there are several other monuments dedicated to other artists who created sculptures that adorned the building in its prime.

In addition to its impressive architectural remains, visitors can also view many statues that remain inside and explore unique details such as metopes carved into the frieze above the western door which depict scenes involving Amazon warriors fighting Greeks – signifying their importance in Athenian history – as well as a marble stele that lists dedications made by worshippers.

Over time it has become an important site for those interested in classical architecture and art history due to its excellent preservation, making it an invaluable part of Greece's cultural landscape today.
