Check out these stunning pictures of the new angel Moroni statue on the Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple. What a beautiful addition to the city's skyline!

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints placed an angel Moroni statue atop the highest spire of its temple in downtown Philadelphia on December 30, 2015. This is a major milestone in the construction of the first Mormon temple in Pennsylvania.

“Mormons in our area have been watching for this visible highlight of the construction period,” said Elder Milan Kunz, an area seventy and senior Church leader for the Philadelphia region. “It indicates the temple is nearing completion and it adds a new image to the skyline of the city.”
