Fantastic!
And it looks a bit like Maurits Escher's dream structures. It was not easy to realize where the ground level is.

Edinburgh, Scotland

National Monument, Edinburgh

The monument was intended to commemorate the fallen soldiers of the Napoleonic Wars, a number of options were considered including triumphal arches and a church based on the Pantheon until a church and crypt based on the Parthenon was agreed. Construction was paid for by public subscription and begun in the 1820s, it quickly ran out of funds and subscribers however and only the base and 12 columns was erected earning it the moniker of Edinburgh's Disgrace. Several suggestions have been made for its completion over the centuries, the City of Glasgow even offered to pay for it (as long as the city's coat of arms would be prominently visible - Edinburgh turned the offer down). Perhaps one day.

Archibald Elliot design based on the Pantheon and to be sited on the Mound rather than Calton Hill
