Discovering Great Mormon Buildings

Hollywood Stake Tabernacle Chapel Interior

Sadly, while I was there, the timing was not right for taking pictures in this magnificent chapel, but I was able to get a couple of skewed photos to at least get a feel for the space. One of my favorite features that also shows up in a Phoenix chapel by the same architects is all the colorfully-painted detailing on the dark wooden beams. The rostrum was fantastic, and uniquely included large red plush chairs centered behind the pulpit. At the rear of the chapel was a balcony which I also couldn’t get access to. I will definitely need to plan another trip to Southern California.
