    Yes, I read a related article, I found it interesting that the authors considered the structure to reflect the influence of Christian centralised communal worship and architecture on pre Christian worship.

    I think this article has a little more detail:

    I thought that an interesting take as well. Depending on the age of the temple, I am sure it's a possibility. The only other Temple I have heard of is at Upsala.
