Did a tour of the Temple. Nice architecture but the admission is too pricey. Tour lasts an hour and was informative. We had a nice guide.

Naked things should not be in an area that has Christian Values or Family Values places. I took so many pictures but inside had naked statues so I deleted all the outside one.

A very old and beautiful building. You can take a tour and will be explained what the Masons are about etc. Check the schedule to see the days and hours for the tour.
