Impossible temple?

impossible temple

I think I’m going insane, which I guess would be fitting, considering the theme of this map. I’ve been staring at it for so long my brain is turning into liquid, and can’t for the life of me understand the “gap” marked red in the image.

Is the map cursed by the Great Sleeper in the sunken city of fucked up geometry?

Leave a comment if you can help me solve this riddle.

Edit: so I got an answer from a friendly fellow in a Facebook group. I’ll leave the post here anyway, for your amusement.

  1. There is no ‘how’, everything is fine.
    If you draw a blue line along the underside of the floor it will become apparent that the red square is beneath the flagstone level and behind the squid-wall.
