A view of a circular temple, standing on a high mound in the grounds of the demesne of [Sir Charles] Domvile Esq. in Templeogue. The mound is in the form of a profiled spiral with ramps leading to a Doric temple on top, which has a dome-shaped roof and a ball finial on top. Trees are either side of the mound which is surrounded by water and accessed by a grassy bridge in front of which stand a man, a woman and a dog; in the background, a man with stick climbs the earthen mound.
