Every temple has its own unique, beautiful details in its architecture. Check out some of these stunning temple spires from around the world.

Temples are some of the most beautiful buildings in the world. But temples are more than just buildings. President Thomas S. Monson said, "Temples are more than stone and mortar. They are filled with faith and fasting. They are built of trials and testimonies. They are sanctified by sacrifice and service." Each temple has its own unique design and decorations, designed to reflect the city they are built in. Here are 13 beautiful temple spires from temples around the world.
