Temples Through Time
Temples have been buildings of peace and spirituality throughout all of known history and are scattered throughout the globe. They have been constructed in many places by many people at many times, and they all have one thing in common: God.
The reason why years have been dedicated to constructing these marvelous structures throughout the globe is to worship. Temples are places of peace, rest, and spiritual growth.
Closer to God
The first temple was built with the intention of seeing God and glorifying the heavens, ever since mankind has used temples as a form of expressing that there is something more than ourselves out there.
The temples of today follow the same suit. In modern temples, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints make covenants, or holy two-way promises with God to follow Him in every aspect of their lives. They ponder spiritual questions, and they also unite their families for the eternities in these beautiful buildings.
Though temples have changed throughout time, their purpose remains the same.
