Bruno Bertuccioli, author of the book The Level Club, claims the building is the largest reconstruction of King Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem. Certainly elements of the façade, as with many Masonic structures, draw on the biblical temple. Most prominent on the face are the twin three-storey columns that evoke the pillars of Boaz and Jachin. These columns are supported by the figures of Solomon and his chief architect (according to Masonic lore) Hiram Abiff.
