"Rosslyn chapel: exterior" Rosslyn Chapel Tip by uglyscot
Rosslyn Chapel, Edinburgh: 18 reviews and 65 photos
Having read a lot about Rosslyn Chapel, and then all the hype resulting from Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code", I decided I'd better satisfy my curiosity and pay a visit. The chapel from the outside was a disappointment as it was shrouded in scaffolding. The queue to get tickets was long, and inside was packed, so actually being able to examine and photograph the interesting carvings was hard.
However, I am glad I made the effort, but would like to have gone before it had become so famous.
The chapel belongs to the St Clair family who have links with the Templars and the Merovingian Kings. There is a graveyard round the chapel, and more burial grounds justdown the road.
