The Temple of Olympian Zeus, also known as the Olympieion or Columns of the Olympian Zeus, is a colossal ruined temple in the centre of the Greek capital Athens that was dedicated to Zeus, king of the Olympian gods. Construction began in the 6th century BC during the rule of the Athenian tyrants, who envisaged building the greatest temple in the ancient world, but it was not completed until the reign of the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 2nd century AD some 638 years after the project had begun. During the Roman periods it was renowned as the largest temple in Greece and housed one of the largest cult statues in the ancient world.

The Temple of Poseidon at Cape Sounion was built circa 440 BC by the Greeks. It sits atop a huge cliff, surrounded on three sides by expanses of ocean. No ship that passed through these waters could refuse a prayer to the god of the seas' temple, high above on the sea-side cliff.

The Temple of Hephaestus (Athens, Greece), also known as the Hephaesteum or Hephaesteion is the best-preserved ancient Greek temple in the world.

The temple is located about 500 m north-west of the Acropolis and about 1 km due west of the modern centre of Athens, Syntagma Square. It was built in about 449 BC on what was then the western edge of the city of Athens, in a district which contained many foundries and metalwork shops.

It was therefore dedicated to Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths and metallurgy and was designed by Ictinus, one of the architects who worked on the Parthenon.

Unlike the Parthenon, the temple has all its columns and pediments intact, and even has most of its original roof. Its friezes and other decorations, however, have inevitably been badly damaged by thieves and looters over the centuries.

It owes its survival to its conversion to a Christian Church, the Church of St George, in the 7th century AD. The survival of the exterior came at the cost of the ancient interior, which was removed and replaced by the structures of a Christian church.

Ancient Corinth derived its prosperity from its position on a narrow isthmus between the Saronic and Corinthian gulfs. Transporting goods across this isthmus was the shortest route from the eastern Mediterranean to the Adriatic and Italy.

The Temple of Apollo in Corinth was one of the few buildings preserved by the Romans when they rebuilt the site in 46 BC.
