View of the second level terrace. To the left is the older temple of Asklepios. In the centre are the ruins of a large altar. To the right is the Temple of Apollo. This image was captured at the Asklepieion, the sanctuary of Asklepios, the Greek god of medicine and healing and son of Apollo. It lays 3.5 kilometers north-west of Kos Town and stands on the slopes of a low hill and enjoys a superb view over the sea and the coast of Asia Minor (Turkey) opposite.
