Temple of Mithras

Temple of Mithras Queen Victoria Street, EC4
Cannon Street

Discovered in the rebuilding effort following World War II, this long-suspected ancient Roman temple, in active use until AD350, was dedicated to Mithras. In 1889, a plaque was found in Walbrook mentioning Mithras. This led to speculation that a temple dedicated to the Persian "god of light" might be closeby. While excavating for an office complex in 1954, the foundations of the temple were found and moved, block by block, to their present location.
