Sydney Australia Mormon Temples

Standing on a hillside 15 miles northwest of downtown Sydney, the Sydney Australia Temple is the 28th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was the first to be built in Australia. It serves Church members living in southern Australia and New Guinea.
 
The Sydney Australia Temple was designed by Emil B. Fetzer, who oversaw the design of more than 20 temples around the world during his 21-year career as Church architect. The temple’s modern design features one spire and rectangular stained glass windows shining over the main entrance and ascending the spire. A statue of angel Moroni, coated in gold, stands atop the spire, his raised trumpet a symbol of the restored gospel message spreading over the earth. The temple’s exterior is made of precast panels with a white quartz finish, and its roof is covered with terra-cotta tiles. With 30,067 square feet, the temple includes sealing rooms, where marriages are performed; instruction rooms, where patrons learn about Jesus Christ; a baptistry; and a room representing heaven, known as the celestial room.
