Theseus Temple #1

The Theseus Temple, located in Volksgarten and created by Peter von Nobile from 1819 to 1823, is a smaller copy of the Temple of Hepheastus in Athens, Greece. Until 1890 the temple housed a sculpture of Theseus by Antonio Canova that can now be found at the Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts). After some years of renovation the temple is now gleaming in new splendor.
