Take a look inside the beautiful Tucson Arizona Temple here. “The temple is beautiful,” local member Joshua Ramirez told Mormon Newsroom. “It's just like a big beacon.”
The newest of the LDS Church’s temples, the Tucson Arizona Temple, has its own new-look element.
There is no steeple, no spire nor no towers typical to other Mormon temples. But that's not new — as evidenced by several similar LDS edifices in France, Canada, Hawaii and even in Arizona itself.
No, Tucson's has a dome — essentially a first for a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
In a word, the temple and its dome simply "fits" — fits because it borrows from and blends with not only Tucson’s own traditions but a taste of Italy’s Tuscany region. And it fits with local zoning allowances as well.
