First Official Photos & Video: Inside the Provo City Center Temple

Fire gutted and burned the Provo Tabernacle on December 17, 2010, leaving nothing but ashes inside its skeletal walls.

Exactly five years later, on December 17, 2015, construction on the temple officially ended just in time for the public tours and open house that will begin this week on January 15, 2016. Take a look at beautiful photos and video of this newly completed house of the Lord before it opens to the public.
