This is a lovely little structure that was probably built as a token of love for a birthday or something is just is so in keeping with how big everything is here

This is a lovely but kind of sad spot in the English Garden at Versailles. It took many years for Marie and Louis to forge their relationship together. This structure is a reminder of a very young woman's wish for love and romance amid all the fabulous beauty of Versailles.

It was a beautiful building on a small island accessed by a charming wooden bridge. Learned that the marble sculpting was all first rate and considered to be the tops! The original cupid drawing his bow in the temple is now in the louvre, but the replacement is a fine one done by an 18th century sculptor of note.

When you buy the ticket that includes Marie Antoinette's palace and trianon gardens, there will be a set of places to visit; grand trianon, petit trianon, la ferme, .. and temple of love. Temple of love is a peaceful quiet place to relax at, with nice architecture, gardens, flowers, canals. Enjoy it.

This classical temple with a central sculpture has beautiful views of the Grand Trianon and park area. It was a good place to rest after walking and being around many other people.

Unexpected treat just behind the Petit Trianon. Nice, relaxing garden area, with small canals on both sides. Sit and enjoy.

If you have purchased an entry fee for the Petit Trianon (Marie Antoinette's small palace) then you will find the Temple of Love. It is located in the extensive gardens which are part of the Petit Trianon (and not to be confused with the Grand Trianon). If you want to skip the Chateau and visit the Petit Trianon you can...

So many things to see at Versailles, it is incredible. This "gazebo" is close to the petit Trianon and seemingly away from the main tourist area. (One never really knows because the grounds are so large and visitors could be scattered throughout and not visible to others). The Temple of Love appeared to suggest serenity and peace to me and...
