DescriptionPostcard of a building designed for the Ararat Shrine Temple in Kansas City
Historical ArticleAn old post card pictures a building designed for the Ararat Shrine Temple in Kansas City. The caption reads: Ararat Temple, A. A. O. N. M. S., Kansas City Mo.

The pyramid-type structure has tall stone obelisks at each side of an entrance. Ararat is cut in the stone Lentil over the door. Two camels with riders are portrayed in the street near a side entrance to the building.

The post card published by the Elite Postcard Company of Kansas City, was printed in color in Germany and was copyrighted in 1908 by Ararat Temple.

According to Shrine officials here the building was never erected.
