Picture - The Star Pyramid in Stirling, Scotland

The Star Pyramid, also known as Salem Rock is a massive sandstone, ashlar pyramid dominating the area below Stirling Castle beside the Old Town Cemetery.

The pyramid is enclosed by wrought iron railings and stands on a stone-stepped base upon a shaped grassy mound. The pyramid is on a raised plinth of four steps and has a set of steps to the south leading to it. These are flanked by two stone globes, which at one time would have been surmounted by bronze eagles.

Marble Bibles rest on the base of each face of the pyramid, which is also carved with references to various  Biblical texts. A Bible and Confession of Faith were sealed into an inner chamber in the pyramid upon completion.
