Mount Timpanogos Utah Temple Impressions

After taking several photographs around the grounds I ate in the cafeteria before catching the 11:30am session. This temple is almost a carbon copy of the Bountiful temple. Only the patron entrances were different with Bountiful facing north and Timpanogos facing west. There are some second floor differences and the Timpanogos cafeteria didn’t allow substitutions.

On 17 July 1995, a 13 foot 3 inch gold-leafed statue of the angel Moroni was set atop the temple to an audience of an estimated 20,000
