An garden building, designed in the form of a classical Doric temple, used for standing or sitting in, and fashionable in the 18th century. The original classical Greek Doric style has columns that are fluted with a plain, rounded disc capital but no base. Classical Roman Doric style columns are plain rather than fluted, and have a base.
