Monteath Appeal

Thank you for taking time to visit our Monteath Mausoleum Restoration Appeal page, which is the current restoration Project of the Friends of Glasgow Necropolis.

Monteath Mausoleum

 

This wonderful Mausoleum is the final resting place of two brothers Major Archibald Douglas Monteath who died in 1842, and James Monteath Douglas who died in 1850.   Find out why Archibald Douglas Monteath and brother had different surnames by coming on one of tours!

The Mausoleum, which was designed by David Cousin, is 30ft in diameter.

What makes the Mausoleum so special includes the faces of 48 individual Dwar Palas who guard the Mausoleum, and which are common in Indian and Hindu temples, palaces and forts.


The connection with India was because Major Monteath was an Officer with the East India Company.
