“The Temple of Glory” is outstanding work of clock art on display in the Armory Chamber of Moscow Kremlin that you can see at the entrance of Room 2 on the second floor of the museum. The remarkable 2,5 meters high clock in the form of an ancient temple with mechanical organ that could perform 13 different pieces was created in Moscow by prominent English engineer Michael Medox between 1793 and 1806 for Catherine the Great.
