My family has Freemason members. Especially my uncle, who recently passed.. men in black Land Rovers came to my aunties house and took his robes etc away in silence.

All very secretive. He was taken in by them at the age of 4 and sent to the Royal Masonic School in Hertfordshire England.



From the air, it is all laid out in a very specific way.




This is the very first Grand Lodge in the world, the Grand Lodge of England based in Covent Garden in London.

I was involved with many Masons in various ways (volunteering, charity, etc...) throughout my teens/twenties and the rumors about them are way more exciting and fun than anything I ever saw. From what I gathered, it's just a social club with some rituals with it's eye on charity, especially the Shriners (a seperate, affiliated group). Pretty boring and not nearly as exciting as the conspiracy theories out there.

Freemason Hall, Lahore, Pakistan (abandoned in 1972, after being banned)

Rudyard Kipling was made a mason here, in 1885. The locals call it jadu-ghar in Urdu (literal translation: magic house).

I spot some ancient egyptian stylistic elements in quite a lot of the interiors. Is that common?

My hometown of Waco is the headquarters of all the masons in Texas. So they built two gigantic lodges as well as numerous smaller structures.

The first is the Grand Lodge Temple.

While under construction, just to give you an idea of its overall size.

Here is the other main lodge in Waco, the Lee Lockwood Scottish Rite Temple

This is one of the giant sphinxes guarding the entrance.
