The “Triptych” Facade On Salt Lake Temple Is A Secret Memorial To The Ancient And Powerful “Lost Secret Of The Freemasons”

How The “Triptych” (Three-In-One) Facade On Salt Lake Temple Is A Secret Memorial To The Ancient And Powerful “Lost Secret Of The Freemasons

Salt Lake Temple

This Triptych code expresses an ancient occult wisdom—written in stone. It has nothing to do with Mormonism or Christianity; indeed, it predates the “biblical” (Western) religions. It is part of a much older narrative.


The “Triptych” (three-in-one) architecture on Salt Lake Temple is a hidden memorial to the “Lost Secret of the Freemasons.”

The Triptych symbolizes a prehistoric Universal Religion that conveys mystical, ancient knowledge regarding the secrets of consciousness and life after death.

Modern Mormons, scholars, and LDS leaders don’t realize this.

But a brief look into the history of the Triptych—a history not yet discovered by archaeologists—provides us with some initial clues that the founders did realize it:

#1) IN THE BEGINNING: Triptych temples were built by the world’s earliest civilizations, the “pyramid” cultures:

Pyramind Civilizations

Among some of these pyramid cultures, like the Mayans in Mexico, for example, the buildings of entire cities were emblazoned with Triptych facades.

This is powerful evidence that the Triptych held a deeper meaning:


#2) IN THE MIDDLE AGES: As the pyramid cultures died out—after the rise of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—Triptychs were encoded into the facades of Europe’s medieval churches, castles, and Gothic cathedrals.

This work was accomplished by the “operative” Freemasons who built these medieval sacred structures:

Europe Churches, Castles, and Gothic Cathedrals
 But why did the Freemasons use the same mysterious Triptychs used by the ancients?

Did these Masons—a so-called “Secret Society” of spiritual / mystical builders—inherit the Triptych and the Universal Religion from the ancient pyramid-building cultures?

Were these Freemasons seeking to preserve the Triptych and the Universal Religion by embedding it into the buildings they created?

#3) IN MODERN TIMES: Triptych temples grace the facades of Secret Society headquarters like the Freemasons, the Skull & Bones, and the Shriners.

Even Oddfellow buildings display Triptych architecture in their facades:



Shaped like a Triptych, the Salt Lake Temple was conceived in 1847 by Freemason Brigham Young (predecessor of LDS Church founder Joseph Smith):

It is extremely well-documented that Joseph Smith was a Freemason; so was his brother Hyrum.

Many other members of the LDS church, like Brigham Young, were Masons before they joined Mormonism.

According to scholars, the Mormon involvement in Freemasonry reached its heights during the early 1840’s in Nauvoo. In the Encyclopedia of Mormonism we read:

“The introduction of Freemasonry in NAUVOO had both political and religious implications….Eventually nearly 1,500 LDS men became associated with Illinois Freemasonry, including many members of the Church’s governing priesthood bodies—this at a time when the total number of non-LDS Masons in Illinois lodges barely reached 150.”

Encyclopedia of Mormonism, vol.2, p.527

LDS historian Reed Durham observed:

“There is absolutely no question in my mind that the Mormon ceremony, which came to be known as the Endowment, introduced by Joseph Smith to Mormon Masons initially, just a little over one month after he became a Mason, had an immediate inspiration from Masonry…”

Mormons publicly acknowledge their use of Masonic themes and icons in their rituals and ceremonies, including the square, beehive, compass, all-seeing eye, sun, moon, hand-grips, six-pointed star.

These and other Masonic symbols can be seen on Mormon temples, tabernacles, endowment houses, newspaper mastheads, logos, stamps, seals, hotels, cooperatives, grave markers and church meetinghouses.

Even after the Mormons came to Utah, Brigham Young continued to wear his Masonic pin displaying the compass and square—a fact most historians acknowledge.

Since Freemasonry dates to the 1700’s and Joseph Smith was a Mason before he introduced the LDS temple rituals and built the Nauvoo temple, one is forced to conclude that the similarities between the two groups are due to Smith borrowing elements from Masonry.

Did he also borrow the Triptych? 

Is ancient Masonic wisdom encoded on the facade of Salt Lake Temple?

 Wisdom that perhaps most Mormons are totally unaware of?
