Temples are important sacred buildings. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. We have temples all over the world. In these temples we have marriages that we believe are for eternity. We can be sealed to family members that have passed on, and other sacred things. Temples are also considered to be the house of the Lord. That is why they are built with such fine materials. This is in contrast with our churches, which are very simple.
This particular temple is where some of my friends were sealed. This is a thank you painting for them.
