Temple of Cybele

The Temple of Cybele, the goddess of Phrygia who personified the powers of nature, was built on the Palatine Hill to house the "black stone" (which symbolised the goddess) brought to Rome from Pessinus in Asia Minor, as dictated by the gods. The temple was rebuilt by Augustus after several fires. Today only the base of the cella wall remains in the shade of a group of holm oaks.
