View looking south, down at the Plutonium.
In the right of the center of the photo is a shallow rectangular pool. In ancient times there probably was a raised platform upon which the sacrificial rites took place.
Above the rectangular space, in the foreground and on the left (east) are two of the three sets of benches upon which around 800 worshipers could sit and observe the rituals taking place below and around them.
On the right (west) side of the image, above the stone wall that outlines the pool, is a platform. The excavator says that two pools of freshwater and a round structure (tholos) were constructed there.
