Mormon Temples and Mormon Chapels Compared

There’s often a bit of confusion for those not of the Mormon faith when it comes to the difference between temples and chapels. Do Mormons worship in temples every week? Do temples cause traffic nightmares? Why can’t I go inside a temple when I’ve been to Church with a Mormon?

This infographic highlights some of the key differences between Mormon temples, which are used for very specific purposes by smaller groups of people at a time, and Mormon chapels, which are everyday meetinghouses used for a wide variety of events.
