the 45th Parallel

Greek Temple

Passing through a tunnel under the second Mountain, we follow a stepping-stone path through the sunken garden and climb a few steps to an open lawn around a wooden Greek temple.

The temple appears in early photographs of the garden, before many of the rock structures were built. Wippich apparently intended this to be a performance space for musicians and actors.
