Restoration


This building was the old Provo Tabernacle which caught fire two years ago and was completely gutted inside. The bricks remained. They lifted the old brick structure on steel, made a new foundation and completely restored the inside to make a second temple for Provo, Utah. They are still working on the inside.  All of the windows are stained glass and the original design of turrets were roof were recreated with an addition of the golden statue of Angel Moroni which is placed on most the the temples for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Great church--I'm glad they are restoring it. The second shot is definitely 'the place' and that flower covered wagon is gorgeous.

It's always wonderful to me when a building is restored, instead of taking it down.

The brick tabernacle looks unique to me. I like the original building and admire those who undertook to rebuild the interior after the fire. Nice pictures.
