FUN FACTS

Not all temples have an east-facing angel Moroni statue including the Seattle Washington Temple, Manila Philippines Temple, Taipei Taiwan Temple, Spokane Washington Temple, and Nauvoo Illinois Temple, which have west-facing angel Moroni statues due to lot orientation and the placement of spires (or towers).

Eight (8) temples do not have an angel Moroni. They are the St. George Utah, Logan Utah, Manti Utah, Laie Hawaii, Cardston Alberta, Mesa Arizona, Hamilton New Zealand, and Oakland California Temples.

Only five temples feature an angel Moroni statue holding the gold plates. They are the Los Angeles California Temple, Washington D.C. Temple, Seattle Washington Temple, Jordan River Utah Temple, and México City México Temple.

Due to its height and conductivity, it is not unheard of for an angel Moroni statue to be struck by lightning during a thunderstorm just like a lightning rod.

Corpses are usually buried with their feet at the east end of the plot and the wife is placed on the north side of her husband.

When couples get married the wife stands to the left of her husband.

The first angel placed on an LDS temple was the original Nauvoo Illinois Temple built in the 1840′s and destroyed by fire in 1848. The angel fulfilled a tri-functional purpose as religious symbol, weather vane, and lightning rod.

Actually it was destroyed by Fire from Arson, and then a Tornado not long after the Saints left Nauvoo.
