My History: The Birmingham Alabama temple
I visited the Birmingham Alabama Temple on the Epic Summer road trip of 2011 with my wife and Daughter. Birmingham Temple sits in a spot of ground that was hollowed out of the hill behind it. The lawn goes up the side of this hill, which is about as tall as the temple. It provides a wonderful sheltered lawn and backdrop. It also provides a nice vantage point to view the temple from.

Birmingham Alabama Temple sits nestled in a small valley, surrounded on 2 sides by hills that are taller than it. The circles on the temple are under the inverted stepped trim. This puts the windows down to ground level, allowing them to be Floor to ceiling inside the temple. The windows are stained glass.
