Gobekli Tepe, First Temple of Turkey?

There is an interesting article in Smithsonian Magazine about “the world’s oldest temple” discovered in Turkey. They claim it is 11,000 years old and consists of a number of circular stone rings made up of seven ton pillars. For some reason after they had built the rings they buried them. The significance of this discovery is the claim that the stone structures came first and then people settled around them. Near they end of the article they do confess that nothing can be known for certain because the structures apparently predate the invention of writing by thousands of years.
