Bassai is an archaeological site that was a part of Arcadia in ancient times.  It is famous for the well preserved mid to late 5th century BC Temple of Apollo Epikourios.  Although this temple is geographically remote from major cities of ancient Greece, it is one of the most studied ancient Greek temples because of its multitude of unusual features.  Its construction is placed between 450 and 400 BC.  The temple was dedicated to Apollo Epikourios ("Apollo the helper").  It was designed by Iktinos, architect at Athens of the Temple of Hephaestus and the Parthenon.

A friend and I came across this temple during a drive through the Peloponnese in 2003. One of the interesting things about driving through Greece, the unexpected.
