The Temple of Aphrodite Urania (Greek: Αφροδίτη Ουρανία) is a temple located north-west of the Ancient Agora of Athens and dedicated to the Greek goddess Aphrodite under her epithet Urania.

According to Pausanias, the sanctuary had a marble statue of the deity sculpted by the ancient Greek sculptor Phidias. Today, there are a few saved stones on the slope of the hill beside the train tracks and near the temple of her husband Hephaestus.
