Okinawa Japan Temple Keeps Rising

The steeple walls of the Okinawa Japan Temple begin to take shape as the temple keeps rising higher. The rising steeple has eclipsed the height of the adjacent meetinghouse and will eventually be topped with a metal spire.

Steel columns are rising out of the ground at the Tallahassee Florida Temple site, giving the first semblances of the shape of the temple. Heavy framing will continue over the next several weeks on the foundation walls.
