But seriously, what's up with this weird temple thing on Jeffrey Epstein's private island? pic.twitter.com/njxfg2HahN— jon gabriel (@exjon) July 9, 2019
As bits and pieces from Jeffrey Epstein's private life and business dealings come to light, some people have found a curious building on his Little St. James private island. It looks like a temple of some sort but nobody knows what it's for.
It strongly resembles a temple, though of which sort remains elusive. Epstein is Jewish, and it is possible that he wanted his own private synagogue. But the statuary would be out of place at such a temple, given the Old Testament's prohibition on graven images. Though the cubic base and dome call to mind Islamic architecture, Poseidon would likewise be an odd choice for a mosque. Churches, of course, tend to feature crosses.
Others speculated that it could be a private music room in which Epstein would play the piano. Still others say it could be a lodging place for a caretaker or a cistern for storing or treating water. Insider has more of the details on the mysterious building.
