Altar of Zeus at Mount Ida

Altar of Zeus on 275m hill watching Adramyttian Gulf and Lesbos Island at land of Troy. It is a stone structure with stairs upon which offerings such as sacrifices and votive offerings are made for religious purposes, or some other sacred place where ceremonies take place. High places and elevated areas on which altars have been erected for worship in the belief that, as they were nearer heaven than the plains and valleys, they are more favourable places for prayer.
