History

On September 21, 2004, a 113-foot statue of the angel Moroni was placed on top. This was the 181st anniversary of the first appearance of Moroni to Joseph Smith.

50,000 visitors came to the open house of the temple, that is a lot of people. 20,000 filled the Alamodome for a cultural celebration.

My Thoughts

Visiting this Temple was a good experience. I thought it was a unique build. It was different then some of the other ones I have visited.  It had a great view.
