The Laie Hawaii Temple is frequently known as the “Taj Mahal of the Pacific”. It’s a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located on the Oʻahu northeast shore, and its majesty and beauty are admired by hundreds of visitors from any religion and location around the world.
The 11.4 acres temple is a massive, incredible piece of architecture that holds a treasure of culture and history. The exterior is made of smoothed crushed lava rock and coral. Four carved friezes adorn the uppermost level. These friezes were planned by American sculptor J. Leo Fairbanks, who also built them with his brother Avard Fairbanks. Each area of the temple depicts an important part of the bible: the west side is dedicated to the Old Testament, the south to the New Testament; the north depicts the Book of Mormon and the east, the latter-day restoration of the Church.
The temple is considered a “haven of peace” for the over 100,000 visitors it receives every year, and it’s an incredible tour for those seeking for beauty, history and spirituality.
