View of one of the two arched subterranean sacred rooms- Adyton, of the Temple of Apollo, Greek sanctuary of Apollo of Claros, Turkey. This image shows the room where the sacred spring was located and where the male oracle would issue his prophecies by singing in the form of a song. The large (26 x 46 meters) temple dates from around the 3rd century BC and follows a peripteral plan (6 by 11 columns). It is unique in that it is the only Doric temple built in Ionia and that it has two adytons beneath the cella.
