the story of the lantern tower

Recently we featured a brief video of the crowning vajra being installed atop the Arizona Temple. Here is a chance to enjoy the story behind that amazing achievement as we follow the manufacture, finishing and installation of the three essential components of the lantern tower - the steel frame, the vajra base and the crowning vajra.
