In what has been over two years of extensive renovation, the Idaho Falls Idaho Temple reached a new milestone towards rededication—the angel Moroni statue was removed to receive a new coat of gold paint so it can be ready by the temple's open house on April 22.

For the first time since 1983, the angel Moroni statue atop the Idaho Falls Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints’ temple in Idaho Falls is lying down.

Construction crews removed the gold-plated statue Wednesday morning as part of the temple’s renovation.
