Temple of Hera

Not surprisingly, this temple was much smaller than her husband's, and the ruins are less impressive.

What is interesting about this temple though is that the altar in front—a small slab of stone near where I was standing when I took this picture—is where the Olympic torches for the modern games are lit before starting on the relay to wherever the games are being held.
