Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Celestial Room Murals
After the LA Temple was completed, the endowment began to be presented on film, eliminating the need for murals in endowment rooms. Because of this, murals stopped being used in endowment rooms until the 2000s. Even so, between the 1950s and the early 2000s, a few temple murals were included. These tended to be in hallways or lobbies. Here is the list I was able to come up with:
The Washington D.C. Temple
|Washington D.C. Temple Mural of the Second Coming of Jesus|
The Jordan River Utah Temple
In the main lobby of the Jordan River Temple there is a mural of the Garden of Eden based on the LA Temple garden room mural. You can see the LA Temple garden room mural in part 4 of my temple murals posts.
The Mexico City Mexico Temple
|Mexico City Temple Lobby with Mural of Jesus Christ in 3 Nephi 11|
The Ogden Utah Temple
This temple had a mural of Jesus Christ and some apostles on the Mount of Transfiguration. I'm not sure if it was a print or an original, but it was large and striking in the main lobby. I hope it is kept in the temple after the current remodel is completed. This mural was also effective because the Mount of Transfiguration has been linked to the temple and multiple people (prophets and apostles) have said that this is likely where Peter, James, and John received their endowments.
Salt Lake Temple Annex
The new (added in 1960s) Salt Lake Temple Annex includes a chapel with murals on both the front and rear of the room.
The Bountiful Utah Temple
|Bountiful Utah Temple Chapel|
The Vernal Utah Temple
|Vernal Utah Temple Celestial Room|
There are many temple that have baptistery murals, but I am going to cover those not already covered in a separate post.
There is my list of miscellaneous LDS Temple Murals from 1960 to 2000. Surely I have missed some. Please comment and let us know what you think, tell us of other murals I didn't know about, and discuss murals you would like to see. While I am thrilled that temples have begun using endowment room murals again, I also like seeing these murals in various places in the temple. I love how each temple is different, with random murals adding interesting variety. Please Comment.
