It is the biggest in size Minoan Palace of Crete, and lots of its architectural features were copied in the rest of the Minoan Palaces. The building is built around a big rectangular central yard, and is extended towards every direction, multi floored and quite complicated at places. Within its premises, different in use rooms and buildings were discovered such as: a great number of storage rooms and hundreds of ‘pithoi’, jars in them, potters workshops, stone carvers workshops, metal makers areas, shrines and temples, ‘lustral basin’, or purification rooms, throne room with a marble throne, staircases and living quarters.
