Temple of Lahkesis

Temple of Lahkesis

Temples are structures of worship for various Greek deities. Dedicated to many gods, titans, heroes, and kingdoms. Kratos encounters all sorts of temples and thrones to the gods throughout the series. Many of which hold traps, puzzles, and other significances.

Greek Mythology

Greek temples (Ancient Greek: ὁ ναός, ho naós "dwelling", semantically distinct from Latin templum "temple") were structures built to house deity statues within Greek sanctuaries in Greek paganism. The temples themselves did usually not directly serve a cult purpose, since the sacrifices and rituals dedicated to the respective deity took place outside them. Temples were frequently used to store votive offerings. They are the most important and most widespread building type in Greek architecture.

  • GOWIII takes place between Mount Olympus and the Underworld. No direct temples are encountered but Kratos travels through many personal chambers of the gods. Pandora's temple is seen still on the back of Cronos in Tartarus.
  • The Temple of Euryale was once known as "Medusa's Temple" before her death in God of War. This is the main lair of the Gorgon Sisters and seems to have one queen at a time.
