On the east side of the temple is a serene reflection pool sitting at the base of the main spire. A fountain on the west side replenishes an infinity pool. Visitors are welcome to walk among the gorgeous gardens that decorate the temple grounds and to obtain additional information at the public visitors' center that features films, displays, multimedia presentations, and a stunning reproduction of Thorvaldsen's Christus statue. The Portland Oregon Temple was the first temple built in Oregon. The Portland Oregon Temple sits on land originally purchased in the 1960s for a Church junior college. Later, when the decision was reversed, 7.3 acres were retained for the temple. The Portland Oregon Temple was constructed directly on the Willamette Meridian, which is the principle north-south meridian for all land surveys conducted in the states of Oregon and Washington. The two-story Celestial Room of the Portland Oregon Temple features three chandeliers, long wall tapestries, and a grand staircase. On the top floor of the Portland Oregon Temple are a collection of sealing rooms with white marble altars and a large assembly hall. The floor plan created for the Portland Oregon Temple was adapted and used for the Las Vegas Nevada Temple. On May 11, 1988, the gold-leafed statue of the angel Moroni was set into place atop the 170-foot eastern spire to an audience of television cameras, newspaper photographers, and beaming Church members.//www.ldschurchtemples.com
