The Temple of Concord and Victory
The Temple of Concord and Victory
The designer of the largest of the Stowe temples is unknown. Originally called the Grecian Temple, it was completed in 1749 just after Lord Cobham's death. It is not a copy of any known ancient temple but is probably designed from available books of the period. Six lead figures by Van Nost were added in 1755 - see SP6737 : Carved figure on the Temple of Concord and Victory.
