Inside, the temple is a quiet, peaceful place. All around are beautiful paintings and places to sit and feel the Holy Ghost. There are rooms for different parts of temple worship, like a room with a baptism font and rooms for families to be sealed together. Prophets have promised that we can feel the Savior’s love inside His holy temples.

Hague Netherlands Temple

  • This was the first temple in the Netherlands.

  • Parts of the Netherlands are lower than the sea around the country. This means the temple is built 3 feet (1 m) below sea level.

  • It was built in the city of Zoetermeer, which means “sweet lake.”

Aba Nigeria Temple

  • This was the third temple built in Africa.

  • A bridge was built across the Ogbor River to help people get to the temple.

  • The day before the dedication, Church members celebrated by dancing and singing.
