Temple of Rhea in Phaistos
South of the Central Court and at a lower level, on an manmade terrace on the hillside, is the Temple of Rhea.
This is a building from a later age, the Hellenistic period, and forms a development of the cult of the Minoan Mother Goddess.
In the same area you can see the foundations of a domed structure, dated even earlier than the first palace.
This may be a Neolithic kiln, or a Neolithic dwelling according to other archaeologists.
Lower down than the Temple of Rhea are the ruins of buildings dated to the Geometric Period (10th-7th century BC).
