Man, the Mormons really went on a building spree in the Mid-80's. That is also when I first saw an impressive temple go up by my house in Glenview, Illinois (Chicago north burbs) and became aware of Mormons.

Many of these buildings are quite impressive.

While I understand the religious significance, I feel that the Angel Moroni statues play havoc with any architectural cohesion. This is especially obvious in some of the more strikingly modern temple designs, such as the temple in Ogden. They look especially out of place when placed upon one spire out of the 6 present in several of the designs.

The temple in Salt Lake City, and especially that view of it in winter, is absolutely stunning. I'm to be in Salt Lake for a concert in November, I'll be sure to take a few pictures while I'm there.

I agree with the Angel Moroni issue. The one that stands out with me is the one located at the Hague. It is very modern compared to the rest constructed during that period and it sits very uneasily on top.

The issue is that they are using a standard mold for the new temples where as they should be adapted in design and size according to each one.

The winter pictures of the Salt Lake Temple are wonderful. Still my favorite temple.

Cool temples! I like the one in Salt Lake City and the one built in 1888. Mormon temples have a awe inspiring presence about them. I think this is part of the design.

Why mausoleum style of architecture?

The decorative elements will vary in these photographs, but the underlying theme is a mausoleum-style of design from 1920 and afterwards. They have monumental features, the features are oversize for the building size, and there are few windows. I wonder why this is?

Mausoleum-style is not common in buildings designed for worship -- usually worship buildings are lofty and have windows for air and light in the sanctuary.

Though the temples contructed before 1920 have a more common design for a worship building.

Thank you for sharing

The last picture of the temple in Salt Lake City is really nice.However, it looks more like a castle than a place of worship.

The photograph of the Salt Lake Temple was taken from my office on the 3rd floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building.

Dayl got it right
When they were building the Newport Beach Temple they consulted with the city council and took into account the landscape and the area it was being built. They actually had to lower the angel Moroni due to protests by neighbor.

Most temples actually dont look exactly the same. They are naturally going to be similar in construction, but the decor and the landscaping tends to be quite diff.

Hello, I know that there are 135 Mormon temples so far, but do you guys have smaller ones that you dont consider as temples? Because in this thread I only saw 2 temples built here in Florida (I think) so what if there is a Mormon member who lives far away from these temples, where do they gather?

That last picture is almost magical. It looks like an ice palace from a fairytale. Very beautiful!

Mormons also have regular churches. Temples are more of an analogue to Cathedrals.
