Several styles were used in the construction of the Temple of Aphrodite but only marble was used in the construction. The cult statue of Aphrodite stood in the holy central room (cella or naos) and only the male priests serving at the temple could access. The temple was a place of pilgrimage, and anyone taking shelter witin its walls had the right of protection from local authorities. In the 5th Century, and acceptance of Christianity the pagan temple underwent several changes: a courtyard/atrium was built alongside a sintranon (seated area) for a choir and wooden sections were introduced. The vaulted section of the sintranon were painted with images of Jesus, Mary, Gabriel and Michael. The church was used until the 11th Century when it was burned in a Seljuk raid on the city.
