Request I'm new at studying old maps, so please go easy on me. Can anyone explain what these structures are that look like elaborate gazebos with a building inside of it? Do they represent Temples? Thanks in advance!

Famous "Vinland Map" declared a fraud by Yale University team of scientists. First appearing in 1965, it was purportedly a 1400s map depicting a pre-Columbian “Vinlanda Insula,” the earliest known depiction of the New World. New analysis shows 20th century inks on 15th century parchment.
