This is a different version of the Angel Moroni atop the Provo, Ogden and Salt Lake Temples. This version of the statue has Moroni carrying the Golden Plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated by Mormon Church founder, Joseph Smith. Compare this statue with the one on the Provo temple shown here

Only five temples feature an angel Moroni statue holding the gold plates. They are the Los Angeles California Temple, Washington D.C. Temple, Seattle Washington Temple, Jordan River Utah Temple, and México City México Temple. (Courtesy LDS Church)
