MR says: We can't wait for the Provo City Center Temple open house this coming January!
The long, complex conversion of the burned-out, historic Provo Tabernacle into the Provo City Center Temple is nearly complete, and it will be stunning, the new presiding bishop of the LDS Church said Thursday.
"We realize there is excitement in the community," Bishop Gérald Caussé said. "I went through the temple on Monday, and I can tell you people will not be disappointed. It is a magnificent structure and a rare gem in the community."
On Thursday, church officials invited media to tour the outside grounds and talk to the principle architect, project managers and historians about the remarkable transformation of a 105-year-old tabernacle gutted by fire in December 2010 into what members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints consider a holy temple.
