Cactus Gardens at the Mesa Arizona Temple Grounds
Landscape rocks have been placed in one of the new cactus gardens at the Mesa Arizona Temple grounds, carrying on the fond tradition of incorporating cactus into the landscaping. Handsome lamp posts have been installed along Hobson, and the footing for the monument sign has been poured. At the north end of the project along Main Street, the construction barrier has been moved back, revealing beautiful planter boxes along the sidewalk that will be filled with colorful flowers. Long sections of ornamental fencing are being connected with beautiful gates.
Winnipeg Manitoba Temple Art Glass Windows
The art glass windows installed over the past few weeks in the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple reflect brilliantly under the blue skies featured in the latest photographs of the temple complex. Window installation continues on the front and rear sides of the temple and will soon begin in the lantern, just beneath the spire. Brick layers are also making steady progress up the front side of the building.
Take a Look at the Okinawa Japan Temple
The Okinawa Japan Temple will be a two-story building of approximately 10,000 square feet, as revealed today in an exterior rendering released to the public. Plans also call for a temple patron arrival center to be added to the adjacent Okinawa Ward meetinghouse. The temple’s location near the Kadena Air Base and just off the Okinawa Expressway will make it easily accessible from locations throughout the island.
Installing the Hamilton New Zealand Temple Carpark
Concrete crews are pouring the garden spaces, walkways, and stairs for the parking area behind the Hamilton New Zealand Temple.
