Landscaping and Cladding Underway at the Puebla Mexico Temple

Green grass and trees are filling in the outer sections of the Puebla Mexico Temple grounds while dark gray pavers are being laid for some of the walkways and driveways. On the rear side of the temple, crews are installing ornate stonework that features pinnacle-topped pilasters between the Celestial Room windows and elaborate window toppers that blend with the beauty and flair of local architecture.

Scaffolding Removed from North End of the Taylorsville Utah Temple

Scaffolding has been coming down from the north end of the Taylorsville Utah Temple, providing an unobstructed view of the exquisite Italian stone cladding being installed. Cladding started on the north end and is well underway on the east side. Progress is also being made on the hardscape including walkways, stairs, and surface parking. Shingles have been attached to the pitched roof.

Concrete Frame Rising for the Harare Zimbabwe Temple

The concrete frame for the Harare Zimbabwe Temple continues to rise. Columns can been seen for the raised center section that will run from the entry to the back wall. And concrete walls are being poured for the protruding entry that will support a windowed steeple. A pitched roof frame is being installed on one of the ancillary buildings south of the temple.

Landscaping the Abidjan Ivory Coast Temple Grounds

Trees have been removed and irrigation lines installed along the south side of the Cocody stake center in preparation for new landscaping that will coordinate with the grounds of the Abidjan Ivory Coast Temple. The exterior walls of the services building have been plastered and are visible over the construction barrier. A small portion of the south end of the temple can also be seen just beyond the stake center.
