Provo City Center Temple

On a cold and stormy day in January, my wife and I got up early to visit the open house of the new Provo Utah City Center Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is expected that there will be over 500,000 visitors to the Temple before its dedication on 20 March 2016. During the past year or so, we have been privileged to visit the open houses held for four other Temples and my impression is that this is the best organized such event we have attended.

The new Provo City Center Temple is a reconstruction of the historic Provo Tabernacle that was destroyed by a fire on 17 December 2010. The exterior of the building was salvaged and used as the basis for the reconstruction. The interior of the building as completed is exquisite. It is clearly the highest quality and most impressively beautiful handiwork I have ever seen, including the previously visited Temples. The finish is unbelievable down to the door handles and hinges.
