The Benaki Museum's Islamic art collections are housed in a complex of neo-classical buildings located in the historic center of Athens, in the Kerameikos district. Major archaeological sites located in the same area include the grounds of the Ancient Agora (currently under development), the Doric Temple of Hephaestus (the "Theseio") and the Kerameikos Ancient Necropolis Museum (cemetery). This complex of buildings at the corner of Agion Asomaton and Dipylou streets was donated to the museum by the late Lambros Eftaxias, who in his last years was honorary president of the museum's administrative council.
