The front elevation of the Temple of the Four Winds is shown centrally. It consists of a cube with a dome and four porticoes, only three of which can be seen. Two of the four female figures can be seen either side of the steps leading up to the temple.
The grassed area leading up to the temple is known as the Temple Terrace.
To the left in the picture the trees indicate the edge of Raywood.
