(on wikipedia) There’s a reproduction of what the Temple of Solomon would have looked like. Also there have been pictures (not photographs of course) of the Temple of Herod and I think there are blueprint requirements of the temple in the bible, such as how many cubits the rooms are supposed to be.
THAT being the case, I saw the spires of a Mormon temple on some picture, and it looks neo-gothic or something, not at all mideastern.
Umm, so why did they not make the temples more like the original temple? Surely they knew the difference between European neo-gothic architecture and Mideastern? And of course the Wailing wall still stands from Herod’s temple, so the type of worksmanship and materials are known as well. The mormon version is not even close, way too tall and neo-gothic (although the color looks accurate), not at all the same.
I dont get it (I never do)
