Even if you do not believe in gods, you know what temples are. These structures were built for some spiritual activities. Religion is one of the most ancient phenomena. Temples existed a thousand years ago and they are being built now. It is unbelievable, but even ancient people were seeking for the sacred truth! The oldest temples were created by the nations that are no longer present on Earth. For example, the first temple was built more than 11,000 years ago, meaning it was erected by prehistoric people. So, Gobekli Tepe was built before settlements and agriculture and even before any religious belief systems.
