The temple-well near the village of Garlo is a unique archaeological site located in the southwestern part of Bulgaria. It is located near the village of Garlo, Breznik municipality, Pernik district. It is located about 3 kilometers west of the village, at the foot of the Strazha Mountain. This ancient structure dates back to the end of the Bronze Age (16-12th century BC) and is believed to have been used for religious rituals and pilgrimages.
The structure consists of a central chamber approximately 4 meters high surrounded by a circular gallery approximately 20 meters in diameter. In the centre of the circular gallery is a well leading to an underground chamber. The walls of the temple are constructed of large stone blocks arranged without the use of mortar or other binding materials.
