Tarxien Temples | Tarxien, Malta | 13 August 2014

A stone block with two carved spirals blocks the entrance into the second set of apses of the Central Temple. In the doorway, as in many other doorways on site, there are pairs of interconnected holes on opposite sides. These indicate points where screens or doors could have been used to close off physical access, or even visibility, to what was happening in certain parts of the temple.
