During my trip to Indianapolis, I had some free time, so I wandered down to see the Capitol and the Scottish Rite Cathedral. I was expecting it to be an Anglican or Methodist church, but in reality it is a Masonic temple. In the US, this order is well-established, and has counted various presidents among its members. The cathedral is in a very central location, next to Memorial Square. It's built in the Gothic style, and has a very high bell-tower. The guided tour takes less than half an hour. The interior is full of ornaments, in stark contrast with the more sober exterior. The rooms within are full of esoteric and astrological symbols, all relating to the Masonic order.
