|In Washington, D.C., the Mormons (or Church of the Latter Day Saints) have a really large and impressive temple that overlooks the beltway (the interstate loop around D.C.). They seem to have done that in several major cities. Anyway, it always intrigued my so I took this picture and the one below.||=0=|
|The temple looks a little surreal, appearing to almost float above a tree covered hill which the beltway winds around. The straight lines coming up from the base hidden by trees helps create that effect.||=0=|
|I assume that the Mormons use the interest generated in their impressive temples as a way of introducing people to their teachings. However, whatever the reason, it is an interesting structure.||=0=|
|Here are more pictures of the Mormon temple from around the building.||=0=||=0=||=0=|
|I am not sure where this picture is from. The grounds where very nice also and I assume that these pictures were from there, though I don't remember for sure.||=0=|
