I suppose there's something to be said for a Temple of Mammon actually looking like a temple -- if only to befuddle the Nigerian archaeologists who excavate it in two or three thousand years.

(It vaguely reminds me of the Temple of Minerva in Assisi, which is also crowded on both sides, and had a church plopped in its cella in the 16th century.)
