After the Assembly Room has been seen in all its magnificence, the Spiral Staircase is then ascended. The first tier of circular windows (the second floor) is where the dressing rooms are located. After one is dressed, the Spiral Staircase is ascended again, this time to the second tier of arched windows where the Endowment Rooms are located.

Unfortunately, I could not find a picture of the Terrestrial Room for the Nauvoo Temple. If anyone knows where I can find one, the help would be much appreciated.
Here is the Celestial Room. Notice the Pentagrams and Morning Stars carved into the walls. Also, a variation of the Sunstones are carved here, too. If you look closely on the table in the center of the Room (with the flower as the centerpiece), you will notice that the feet of the table are rams' heads. On a side note, when the Latter-day Saints rebuilt this temple, care was taken to ensure that the furnishings were as close to the look of the 1840s as possible.
The Nauvoo Illinois Temple holds the prize as having the largest Baptistry out of all the Temples because the LDS Church simply reconstructed it as it was in 1846.
I hope the reader has gained a greater appreciation of the House of the Lord, the Endowments found therein, and Jesus the Christ.
