Four Sphinxes

Two sphinxes at either entrance. Pretty cool to see.

[T Wilson, 03/04/2023]

Four sphinxes flank the two entrances to the India Shrine Temple parking lot. They aren't relics from Ancient Egypt, but modern additions, commissioned by Shrine Potentate Clarence L. Todd Coker in 1999. A vigorous man, he "died suddenly" on New Year's Day 2001.
