Džunglitempel / Jungle temple

Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 7 August 2020 in Architecture.

After the sea battles of the Russo-Japanese War in 1905, Tsar Nicholas II ordered the construction of the Baltic shore fortifications.
The largest firepower cannon batteries of Peter the Great’s Maritime Fortress were built on Naissaar Island. This battery is currently called also "Jungle Temple".

Great information on this intriguing structure. I enjoy the kind of scenery where nature reclaims man made objects and this one looks rather spectacular.
