Temple of MithrasThis amazing ancient Roman temple was accidentally unearthed as part of reconstruction work undertaken on Walbrook Street in the city of London after World War Two. Dedicated to the Persian god of light and sun, temples such as this mithraea were typically built partly or totally underground. The reason for this is that they were intended to symbolise the cave where Mithras brought down the primordial bull and thus released powers of life and creativity to the world. In order to allow reconstruction work to continue the site was excavated, artefacts were placed in the Museum of London and the temple itself was moved. It was elevated and placed on public view. The are plans to move the temple from Temple Court, Queen Victoria Street returning it to its original location below ground off the Walbrook River as part of the Walbrook Square development by Norman Foster and French architect Jean Nouvel.
