So what exactly are these temples? Why are they built? What do we do in them? There are a lot of questions regarding all of these things. Often people associate the temples with places of secrecy, but it is more a matter of sacredness. I wont attempt to explain all of it. Hopefully this video helps. Also, I encourage you to go this website and check it out. It will answer your questions and explain things a lot better then me. http://lds.org/church/temples or check out http://www.mormontemples.org/ This second one is great!
I also put a few pictures up of some temples spread out across the world. Hope you find them as beautiful as i do!
