Slonta temple

Slonta temple is located 24km south of Al bayda high hidden in the Green Mountain’s groves. It’s a small ancient Libyan temple dating to the period before the Greek occupation. Therefore one can safely associate the cave of Slonta with the indigenous Berber culture. The Slonta temple was obviously a place for worship, but very little is known about the cult that gave rise to the temple. Slonta temple structure incorporates a local architecture unique to the area consisting of a low semicircular entrance with cylindrical columns in the middle of the cave.
