Knossos, the Tripartite Shrine
The Tripartite Shrine is the main sanctuary in Knossos. It lies south of the Throne Room, along with its secondary rooms. In the Treasury of the shrine were found the faience “Snake Goddesses”. To the west are two rooms with a central pillar on which carved “mason’s marks” were found.
In the floor are depressions for liquid offerings, leading archaeologists to believe that this was a form of pillar-worship, where the goddess was believed to reside in the pillar.
