Temple of Hera

The Temple of Hera, or Heraion, is an ancient Archaic Greek temple at Olympia, Greece, that was dedicated to Hera, queen of the Greek gods. It was the oldest temple at Olympia and one of the most venerable in all Greece. It was originally a joint temple of Hera and Zeus, chief of the gods, until a separate temple was built for him.

The torch of the Olympic flame is lit in its ruins to this day.The temple was built in approximately 590 BC, but was destroyed by an earthquake in the early 4th century CE.
