Of Temples & Chapels

Ever wondered about the difference between a Mormon chapel and temple?

The folks at LDS Public Affairs decided to explain a few of them, in all their infographic-loving ways.

The graphic is a bit outdated, as the church recently dedicated its 140th active temple in Calgary, Canada. But it still makes good on several key points of doctrine.

One of the more striking numbers on the infographic is that 83 percent of members of the church live within 200 miles of a temple. This is likely due to the recent surge in temple construction, begun by the late Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley and continued with the living Prophet and President of the church, Thomas S. Monson.
