Apia Samoa Temple
Video and Model Details
The original Apia Samoa Temple burned to the ground near the end of a remodel. This one was built in it’s place. I made this model, and I don’t really like the way the rendering turned out. However, after I finished the rendering I found that the model had become corrupt. I’m going to have to start over from the simpler model I made for Google Earth, I am afraid. Find that particular model here.

There is one engraving on the Apia Temple. The engraving is on the center east north-east section of the temple underneath the spire. The Samoan Text is carved into the granite and painted black.
The Original Engraving sat to the right (North) of the entryway and were formed of raised brass, as was common with the pacific style temples.
