    Favorite thing: The best preserved ancient Greek temple in the world, the Doric TEMPLE OF HEPHAESTUS circa 449 B.C. is located in central Athens in the ancient Agora section of the city. It is far less known than the Parthenon, but unlike the Parthenon, the Temple of Hephaestus has all its columns and pediments intact and even has most of its original roof.
    Hephaestus was the son of Zeus and Hora.
    The temple which is sometimes called the Theseion, gets much less tourist traffic than the Parthenon and is a pleasant green area in the heart of Athens.
