Temple of Hera

The ruins of Palaestra, a gymnastics school for boys and the Temple of Hera were the first ancient buildings Temple of Herato be featured on postage stamps. The temple of Hera 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 until a separate temple was built for the latter. The existing temple was probably built around 600 B.C. Looking at this Greek stamp we get an idea of the temple and the configuration of the buildings and intricate construction of the columns.
