Haidari is an urban area and municipality of the Western Sector of Athens. The Municipality of Chaidari is the largest in terms of its area in Western Athens.
The eastern part of Haidari was mainly pastures, but with urban development, between the 50s and 80s the area has become urban. During the years of Ottoman rule, this large farm became the property of Haidar Pasha, who named it Haidari, a name which over the years was given throughout the region.
The present-day city of Haidari is the most historic settlement of Western Athens, whose basic financial core was created around 1882. It is the first area of Western Athens that acquired a well-known design, while it has obvious signs of its historical continuity, which function semantically as a pole of recognition.
The first inhabitants of Haidari were refugees from Mikra Asia at the time of the Asia Minor catastrophe.
Haidarı, is a city with historical memories of all times, has political monuments of archaeological, historical and religious nature such as the Ancient Sanctuaries of Aphrodite and Apollo, the Cave of Pano, the Palataki (palace), the former German Concentration Camp during the German Occupation, the Church of the Prophet Elias and the Monastery of Daphni.
Haidari has a number of monuments dedicated to the memory of important people who lived, acted, fought or even died in the city. Some of them are, The Monument of Chrysostom, Metropolitan of Smyrna, the Monument of Theodoros Kolokotronis, the Monument of Eleftherios Venizelos, the Monument of Pontian Hellenism and many more.
The area of the Municipality of Chaidari can function as a super-local pole due to its size, the potential existence of a relatively high level of positive environmental conditions, its distance from the centre of Athens, the easy access to the area from both Athens and Piraeus and the existence of the two major mental illness hospitals and the Attica Hospital.

The Diomedes Botanical Garden of the University of Athens extends to 1,500 acres. Today, the Diomedes Botanical Garden is the largest Botanical Garden in Greece and the entire Eastern Mediterranean. In 1975 the Garden opened its gates to the public.

Also the Monastery of Daphni, which was probably, founded around 1080. In 1990, the Monastery of Daphni was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Monastery of Daphni owes its great fame worldwide to the brilliant mosaics that adorn its catholic. They express the revival of the anthropocentric character of classical art which characterizes mosaic art during the Macedonian dynasty. They are attributed to craftsmen from Istanbul, due to the excellent technique in the construction and the impeccable aesthetic quality that characterizes them.
