Three goddesses of Islam and two Goddess-worshiping kings, Manasseh and King Amon are buried there. See the acacia tree behind her – she was said to dwell in any garden where acacia trees were planted. The Temple was built of acacia wood. The book of 2nd Kings calls Manasseh and Amon evil kings because they took after Solomon and worshipped Goddess AND God. 
Oh, Can’t have that!
The goddess pictured on the right is Menat. Menat means Fate and this painter has her as the crone form of the Arabian triple goddess.

Sometimes these three are called the daughters of Allah.  But the middle one, Allat, is actually his spouse and really, they are all three rolled into one goddess.
