New Payson, Utah LDS Temple
Last week, we had the privilege of visiting the Open House for the new Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Payson, Utah. This was a great experience. Everything about the Open House was well organized and the Temple was very impressive. We were scheduled at 10:00 am on a school day (week day) but the parking lot was almost full and there were long lines of people waiting for the tour. We moved right along and did not have to wait very long for a tour. The Payson Temple is one of the largest built recently and the seemed very large compared to our recent tour of the Phoenix, Arizona Temple. The interior has an apple blossom theme and the windows and other elements combine into a remarkably beautiful experience. I could immediately feel the spirit of the Temple even though there were lots of people on the tours.
