The Mormons’ Indianapolis temple isn’t actually in Indianapolis. It’s in Carmel, a city that borders Indianapolis to the north.

But I gather that this building is drop-dead gorgeous inside. After it was completed a few years ago, they offered tours to the public. My parents went, and my mom gushed for days about the quality of the materials and the attention to details. I wished I had made time to take a tour.

Because after the tours completed, non-Mormons were forever blocked from entering.

    That’s a lovely photo Jim!

    It’s kind of interesting that they don’t allow anyone in – seems kind of the reverse of what you’d expect. Most Church communities I’ve encountered are normally very welcoming.


    • My understanding is that Mormon temples are for special services and occasions, and are not a place for routine Sunday worship. As such, they limit them to only Mormons. But I bet you could walk into a regular Mormon church for worship no problem.
