Description The architectural remains of the Sanctuary Phase are not very clearly understood. The architecture consist of five short wall segments, lying parallel to each other. No connecting wall could be found that joined these parallel walls. However, a large number of religious objects were recovered suggesting a sacred use of the area. Near the walls mud-plastered areas were discovered and a plastered platform where a large number of "mother goddess" figurines and idols were found.
