Temple of Hera at Olympia

The Temple of Hera was built in 590 BC and marks the transition from mud brick to stone temples. This temple represents "typical" Greek temple architecture complete with peristyle (meaning an external colonnade), an altar facing east, and cella. It is interesting to note that the original temple columns were made of wood, but were later replaced with stone.
