Artemis's Sacred Grove

Much like a certain valley is sacred to Hera and Apollo has laid claim over a particular beach, this grove is the protected territory of Artemis. Though she is the Goddess of the Hunt, hunting and killing any animal (especially deer or a Golden Hind) is strictly forbidden here. When Iolaus attempted to shoot a deer in this grove, Artemis stopped him. More to a point, she punished him for his actions by switching his mind with that of the deer he tried to kill.
